FAQs

Why is coding so important?

Without coding, computers would literally do nothing. They would be completely useless.

That’s because the source code is the set of instructions that tells the computer what to do. If you have ever sent an email, searched something of Google, requested an uber... They're all actions powered by software.

The interface renders content which is created by HMTL & CSS.

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is perfect for people aged over 18 who have never touched a line of code. This is for any adult wanting to learn to code in a group environment or learn a new skill. You may want to learn for pure enjoyment or to further your existing career.
