BookMachine Unplugged: Talking Tech

Doing digital the publishing way – coding for all: a manifesto

This is not your typical digital event. You won’t hear about the importance of a maths or computer science background. You won’t see a (mostly male) panel talking agile vs waterfall, workflows and gamification.

You will hear from inspiring publishing professionals. They’ll demystify coding and show how a typical arts and humanities-educated publisher can get involved. They will inspire so you see how the skills of an editor, copywriter or indexer are transferable and relevant for doing digital.

If you work to improve writing, you can code.

If you can think about the structure of a story, you can code.

If you can shape plots and narratives, you can code.

Hear from a publishing queen-turned-coder about how she made the transition. Learn how the Ruby language is an expressive, grammatical form of poetry that is perfect for editors. Be inspired by a programmer talking about inclusivity in digital.

Think you can’t code? This event will prove that yes, you're perfect for it.
