Here you’ll find details about the CodeBookClub. Who are we?

We are hundreds of developers of all experience levels learning together. We hold live online meetups on Zoom, a video conference software. We pair program, hold group coding sessions, and read/discuss tutorials, courses and technical books together. Take a look at this quick video I made about the club.

If you’d like to join for the first time or find details on a particular meeting:

  1. Join our email list to get your invitation to the club by email, and to get updates on future books or community events.
  2. Read the #welcome channel before posting, and make sure you post in the relevant channel. If the link is not working for whatever reason, email me and let me know or follow me on Twitter where I’ll be posting new links.
  3. Introduce yourself in the discord.
  4. Remember that you don’t need to attend every meeting or event in the club! Just make it when you can.
