Event Description

In preparation for EU Code week #CodeEU which runs from 7th to 22nd October 2017, Sligo EDIC have organised ‘introduction to coding’ workshops throughout the library branch network during July. We hope to establish a regularly attended coding club in the near future.

We increasingly live in a world that has been affected by rapid advances in technology. The way we work, communicate, shop and think has changed dramatically. In order to cope with these rapid changes and to make sense of the world around us, we need to not only develop our understanding of how technology works, but also develop skills and capabilities, that will help us to adapt to living in this new era.

Learning to code helps us to make sense of how things work, explore ideas and make things, for both work and play. What’s more it helps us to unleash our creativity and work collaboratively with wonderful people both near us and all over the world.

With coding you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations & share your creations with others in the online community.
