A series of innovative pop-up coding courses have been launched in Leeds to help introduce web and app design skills to individuals of all ages.
In line with national initiatives launched by the Government and the BBC to emphasise the importance of coding skills in the UK, the Lovecode courses introduce beginners to a wide range of web development techniques and helps communities establish a foundation for digital knowledge.
Ian Surry, co-founder of Lovecode, said:
“Awareness of the importance of digital literacy has become a national priority.
“However, affordable first-step coding courses that are accessible to individuals of every age are not widely available outside of London.
“Lovecode’s courses allow anyone, from students to pensioners, to develop an understanding of how to code and practically apply this knowledge to every day personal and professional situations.”
The coding courses will be held on 25-27 June at the Round Foundry Media Centre in Leeds.
Students completing the three-day course will develop a strong understanding of web development and design, equipping individuals of any age and background with the knowledge to start building websites and web apps.
Mr Surry added:
“Yorkshire has become a centre of innovation for both start-ups and established companies looking to achieve growth through technology.
“It is essential that we offer affordable educational opportunities to individuals in the community that provide access to the digital skills that regional employers need to stay competitive.”
