October will be a quiet month for Coding Grace, so this is actually a Oct-Nov-in-one newsletter. I will still send an updated newsletter in November as there might be more events to be announced.

We ran our first Javascript workshop at Adverts.ie as well as Data Analysis with Python. There is a follow-up to the data analysis workshop kindly hosted by Insight Centre for Data Analytics (DCU) on Sat 1st Nov.

CultureTECH in Derry was welcoming as always and we ran a successful beginners Python workshop, you can read our write-up as well as other news here.

We are open to people hosting local chapters in their area, so do get in touch if you are interested.

If you have questions/suggestions or want me to mention something in the next newsletter, feel free to email me at info@codinggrace.com.
