National Coding Week

The 21st September sees the start of National Coding Week, an event which aims to inspire people to learn coding and other digital skills. Take a look at their website to see more details of the week, fascinating case studies and examples of the activities that are taking place.

We would like to hear if anyone is planning anything for Coding Week so we can help to coordinate and promote local activities. Also, do let us know if you are planning or are interested to learn how to code using an online course or with a group. Contact info@digitalgreenhouse.gg

Local Digital Innovations

One of the roles of the Digital Greenhouse is to help promote local, digital innovation. It would be great to hear from anyone about either projects that they are working on or products that have been released recently so that we can help promote digital innovation that is already happening in Guernsey.
