The London Computation Club is a meet-up for people interested in one or more of the following:
Reading books (perhaps one we wouldn’t ordinarily read on our own)
Learning about computation, programming and programs in general
Writing code (perhaps of a different sort than we’d do for “work”)
Hanging out with other inquisitive people
We organise the club via our mailing list and on Slack so please join us there.
You can also follow us on Twitter , see code that we’ve produced on GitHub and write-ups of past meetings on our wiki .
Code of Conduct
It’s of primary importance that everyone who wants to participate feels safe and welcome. When participating in the London Computation Club, either online or offline, at the meeting itself or at the pub afterwards, we expect you to respect our code of conduct .
Books we’re reading
Books we’ve read
If you buy these books using the Amazon links, London Computation Club gets a little kickback via the Amazon affiliate programme. We use that kickback to buy copies of the books for our library, to assist members or potential members who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford the book.
Acknowledgements
Thanks to the following companies for providing office space and copies of books for the club to read.
