National Coding Week is taking place 18-25 September 2017. It aims to bring coding and digital skills to everyone, regardless of their age or experience. As an official partner, we've got lots going on. Whether you want to learn to code from scratch or improve your existing programming skills, get involved.
Join a live coding Q&A with Raspberry Pi
At 13:00 UTC+1 on 18 September 2017, we’ll be running a live coding Q&A on Facebook with the Raspberry Pi Foundation. This UK-based charity provides low-cost, high-performance computers, to help people learn, solve problems and have fun.
Raspberry Pi already offers a range of coding courses on FutureLearn. Educators James and Laura will be on hand to share top tips, answer your questions and chat all things code.
Attend a beginners’ coding class at FutureLearn HQ
If you are over 18, live in London and want to learn to code, come along to FutureLearn HQ in Camden at 18:00 on 18 September 2017 for our beginners’ coding class.
Members of the FutureLearn team will take you through an interactive, hands-on session. You’ll get to see the code behind your favourite websites, find out how it can be manipulated, and create your own webpage using HTML and CSS.
Join an online programming course
Throughout the week, you can join all sorts of online programming courses on FutureLearn. You could:
- get inspired by video game music or video game character design
- get started with Python on Learn to Code for Data Analysis
- improve your existing skills with courses on object-oriented programming and functional programming
- explore what’s next in computer science with Supercomputing or Understanding Quantum Computers.
