At our Digital Jobs Agenda Summit earlier this year in Leeds, we chewed over exactly how to address the North’s digital skills shortage. We thought it would be good to share with you the six ‘lightning talks’ from the event.
We invited innovative thinkers and doers from the world of tech education to share what they’re up to. From teaching prisoners to code to giving graduates a fresh take on career development, there’s heaps of inspiration here.
I introduced the lightning talks, and to keep them to time I decided I’d shout a random word once they hit the strict 3-minute limit. So if you hear someone shout a word like “EPIDEMIOLOGY!” or “SEMIOTICS!” from offstage, that was me. Sorry.
