It's good news for technology lovers in Guernsey today with the return of National Coding Week.
The seven day event takes place at the Digital Greenhouse and offers islanders the chance to learn the latest skills in digital technology.
This year's week will feature a series of events with different focuses including:
- technological advances in the digital sector
- career development
- an introduction to coding
- educational courses aimed at various ages.
Last year's global event saw 4,500 people from novices to coding professionals attend over 300 events worldwide.
Tamara O’Brien, JT’s Head of Marketing, Brand and Distribution, says the event continues to raise awareness of the importance of learning digital skills.
Lucy Witham, Head of Digital Development at the Digital Greenhouse, was chosen as the Island’s National Coding Week ‘Ambassador’ this year, in recognition of the hard work and support she gave to the event last year.
She hopes to put a focus on young people at this year's event and help them become creators and not just consumers of digital tools.
