SDP 31: Ben Atha on The Developer Academy and teaching Sheffield to code
Episode 31 of the Sheffield Digital Podcast is here and features an interview with Ben Atha, Director of MilkLab Media and founder of The Developer Academy. We talk to Ben about how the Academy offers Sheffield folk a new way to learn how to code and make a change in their career.
From pricing to the importance of face-to-face learning, Ben shares his approach to testing up The Developer Academy so far. He also covers the organisations aims and how the first crop of learners have taken to this new programme in Sheffield.
In part two of the podcast, Mel provides a marvellously concise overview of the recently announced Sheffield Digital Festival. If you don’t know what that is, put that right by reading the Festival’s launch post .
