Our very own SWCTN Automation Fellow Tariq Rashid spoke to the sell out two day conference around his passion for running Creative Coding sessions for kids. He covered successful ways of engaging children and demonstrated the best tech to use including a live coding show. Tariq reported,

“This year I was particularly impressed with the programme of talks and tutorials. Not only were the speakers from really interesting industries such as nuclear energy, but their sharing of their own experiences and lessons learned was particularly valuable. Sharing a journey of bumps and obstacles is often more interesting than talking about their destination. A key theme this year was well-being and neurodiversity in the tech sector. My favourite part is talking to people doing really inspiring work, whether its people exploring new ways of working or working for social good.”
