This year’s theme is “Where do I start my tech career?” It is all about teaching and learning new SKILLS that will enable you to explore careers in the technology sector.
The Code to Change conference will introduce you to a variety of fields in the technology sector. You will learn about existing fields, the skills required to enter these fields and tips on where to get those skills. If you are looking for ways to join the IT sector or simply update your digital skills, this is the conference for you.
There will be talks, sessions and workshops from seasoned technology professionals as well as technical and career development talks.
Topics range from big data, high performance computing, coding, to confidence building, career histories and network security. The aim is to not just be about skills building, but also about expanding your network and giving you information about the options available to you.
The conference also gives you the unique opportunity to have a speed mentoring session with the speakers of your favorite sessions.
