@futureCodersSE – Coding Workshops for 16-24s

February 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

£10

Are you between 16 to 24 and want to learn coding?

Ideas Test are hosting @futureCodersSE’s  introductory 6-week workshop series.

Learn how to program Alexa – the voice system developed by Amazon for their products Amazon Echo and Amazon Echo Dot.

Alexa allows you to communicate with an app using your voice rather than by clicking or typing.

At @futureCodersSE you’ll not only get to learn and improve your coding skills but you’ll also explore how the design of apps need to be different when the app is voice-controlled.

Workshops are designed for anyone aged 16 to 24  from beginners to those who want an opportunity to take their coding skills further and learn something new, and meet new people.

At @futureCodersSE you will:

  • Create Alexa skills using a graphical tool
  • Learn to write, and test, simple Java code
  • Learn how to connect the Java code to the skill to make it do something useful
  • Get your skill online .

You can bring your own laptop to work on, but if you don’t have access to one there will be some available to use at the workshops.

You’ll also be able to access all the workshop resources online so that you can practice between sessions if you want to.

Plus if you enjoy the workshops and want to take it further, you can progress to @futureCodersSE project workshop series where you can work on your own projects, with their support.

The cost for the whole 6 weeks of Future Coders is just £10!
Just pay at the first workshop, or via Eventbrite (includes booking fee).

The Future Coders workshops are on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 17th January 2018 6.30 to 8.30pm
  • Wednesday 24th January 2018 6.30 to 8.30pm
