Coding Workshops

Learning to code is an avenue to well paid careers in the IT industry. It offers opportunities for flexible working and working from home. Coding is not just for coders – if you are planning a career in art or music, you will increasingly be working alongside them in film, TV or advertising, and understanding their issues is essential.

In schools it all starts with a simple enjoyable programming language called Scratch. Designed for beginners, it is surprisingly flexible and sophisticated but many get stuck at a relatively low level. So we have designed workshops running during the main festival weekend, to help you over your coding hurdles and for experienced coders, to help you transition to Python.
