A technology loving, girl geek, Digital Skills Training Manager for MadLab’s community learning, and a passion for organising events in my spare time. Self developing, and autodidact, and determined to succeed, I write my own blog, I taught myself to code in Python, and have built several WordPress websites, and studied for my Maths A-Level (for fun).
I’m the head organiser for BarCamp Manchester, the Founder of CodeUp UK, and co-organiser of Django Girls and Rails Girls Manchester. I am the Code Club Champion for the North West, a Raspberry Pi Certified Educator, National Coding Week Ambassador & Pi-Top Champion.
I have a Level 3 Award in Education and Training, and I deliver Digital Skills training for children and adults. Over the last few years I have developed a number of schemes including Digital Skills for Salford (Salford Third Sector Consortium), Digital Skills for Women Manchester (Manchester City Council), 7 languages in 7 days (National Coding Week), Online Safety for Parents and Carers (Tameside Council), and Code Club Train a Trainer.
This blog is a collection of my musings, experiences and wacky days out. I hope you enjoy reading,
