Do you live in London and want to get a quick introduction to coding? Now’s your chance. We’re FutureLearn, a social learning platform, and we’ve teamed up with National Coding Week to run an evening coding class for adults. Join us at our Camden offices on the evening of Monday 18th September and get an introduction to code.

Get practical coding experience

The evening is aimed at adults who are complete beginners to coding; no experience is required. You will get hands on coding experience as you’re taught by an experienced team of developers, with the goal being to produce your own webpage by the end of the two hour session.

As Laura Kirsop, Senior Product Manager, and one of the teachers on the night, explained: “with a recognised coding skills shortage in the UK, we’re delighted to support National Coding Week’s aim to give adults the opportunity to learn some digital skills. Some of our coders have their own interesting stories about how they’ve got into coding, many are self-taught, and some now run their own coding clubs, so we jumped at the chance to be involved with National Coding Week.”

Go behind the scenes of your favourite websites

You will also get to see the code behind some of your favourite websites and understand how that code can be manipulated, before being introduced to CodePen, shown how to fork a project, and then on to creating their own webpage using HTML and CSS.

The details

The class will start at 6.30pm and the session should finish by 8.30pm. You will need to bring your own laptop to the session and will be given further instructions via email before the evening about anything else you need to do.

There’s 40 free places, allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign up here
