The CodeMaker one day course is designed to enable a deeper understanding of how digital products are built and how they function by learning the fundamentals of coding, web architecture and software management practises.  In short: after the day you will leave much more digitally enlightened and much better prepared to make your digital projects a success.

Participants are introduced in a highly interactive way to the core technologies that drive the internet and mobile apps, increasing their comprehension and expanding their tech vocabulary so that they can communicate more clearly with software developers, better scope out projects and make more informed choices when commissioning.

The course held in the swish surrounds of Lime Wharf. Attendees have included people working in tech companies and start ups, law firms as well as senior marketeers from Adidas , BBC Worldwide, Diageo, Money Supermarket, Mr and Ms Smith, Haymarket, Phillip Morris, Mother, Face and many of London’s leading agencies as well as others who want to manage their digital project better.
