On Thursday 16 May London College of Communication welcomes the code crusaders from tech social enterprise Freeformers into The Digital Space for our first ever Tech Jam – a digital immersion workshop where you can learn about coding and have your own Facebook app registered by tea time.
If you’re a graduating student this a fantastic opportunity to add another big string to your creative bow as you take your next step in the creative industries. All you need are two core LCC traits – desire and curiosity – and by the end of the day you’ll be ready to remix the web and make new ideas come to life.
- you’ll have your own website up and running in 15 minutes
- an hour later you’ll have created a social video using YouTube and Facebook plugins.
- halfway through the day you’ll be a registered Facebook app developer
- by the end of the day you’ll have created your own Facebook app
So if you fancy learning some of the skills that made 19-year-old Nick D’Aloisio a multi-millionaire – he sold his app Summly to Yahoo for a modest $19 Million – sign up for Tech Jam on the Freeformers website right here and make your way to @DigitalSpaceLCC on Thursday.
Freeformers is a social enterprise which focuses on breaking down the barriers to technology and giving young people a way to get involved in the digital economy. They believe diversity is vital in creating a talent pool of people who help businesses innovate or become entrepreneurs themselves. They believe young people are important for businesses because they live and breathe the internet and social platforms.
