DESCRIPTION: Have you ever wondered how the software in your computer, tablet or smartphone works? Would you like to develop your skills and knowledge of this subject?
We are a friendly, self-help group working to build our own computer applications for use on PCs, tablets and mobile phones.
Some of us have worked in IT and are looking to extend or refresh our programming skills but we would also very much welcome anyone without an IT background who is interested in learning about it by writing some software of their own.
We use up-to-date technology, but given the phenomenal pace of change in this area there will always be lots for everyone to learn.
Our aim is to use ‘free’ software, so there is no requirement to purchase any items before joining the group.
In our first few meetings, we have explored how to build a website using HTML/Java/CSS, and looked at the potential to build a system using Google software (Google sheets, Google Docs). These were new to all of us, and we have been learning via the wonderful online tutorials which exist on the internet
