I went to my first CodeBar session! codebar.io is a great non-for-profit organisation that aims to teach “underrepresented groups to learn programming in a safe and collaborative environment”. The events are run as weekly workshops where tutors meet with students to work on a set of tutorials or their own projects. This event was organised by Tatiana Soukiassian who works as a developer at GDS. I initially only volunteered for setting up the venue and showing people to the right floor, but by the end it turned out that two people still needed a tutor for an introduction to HTML. So I spent the next 2 hours helping out by going through the tutorials with them. We even branched out a bit and had a quick look at using Bootstrap. I found it really rewarding and enjoyable, would definitely recommend for anyone to get involved!
