Welcome to the website of the Oxford University Computer Society (CompSoc). We're here to promote the use of computers throughout the university, to organise meetings and talks on computing-related subjects, and to generally do things of a computer-related nature.
Here you can find information about upcoming events, about the society itself, and how you can get involved.
Here's a list of some upcoming events, visit the Events Page for a more comprehensive list.
Learn to Code: Session 7
Note: Remember to bring your laptop to these events!
About Learn to Code
During these events, there will be a mixture of interactive workshops and talks. We will be teaching you the basics of programming using Python. These events are good if you have zero coding experience, but they are also valuable if you already have started coding and would like to better your skills. We also welcome people who already have good coding experience as the more volunteers the better!
These events are always followed by our weekly Geek Night.
You can find out more information about this series of events over at ox.compsoc.net/learn
We also have a facebook group for discussion if you are taking part in this course: fb.com/groups/OXLearnToCode
...and a group for those who would like to volunteer: fb.com/groups/OXLearnToCodeHelpers
Geek Night 7 - With Metaswitch
Reps from our sponsor Metaswitch Networks will be taking part in this week's Geek Night with us to chat about the company and tech in the UK in general.
