Coding for Beginners at Sky Betting & Gaming, Leeds Digital Festival
Fri 28 April 2017, 12:30 – 16:00 BST
An initiative to support people into thinking about a career in coding from Sky Betting & Gaming - join Lead Engineer Tom Hudson for a session which uses Ruby to walk attendees through some simple games to give a taste of how coding is applied when solving a number of problems.
The three-hour long course is designed to remove any mystery around what happens when software is written, with a unique focus on making mistakes to replicate the reality of discussions about why things aren't working and how a fix can be sought.
Finding and fixing problems is often one of the hardest things coders are tasked with, but very little time in beginner courses is dedicated to it.
The course is aimed at people with a desire to learn who have basic computer skills and should be of particular interest to people who are familiar with breaking down problems into smaller chunks.
