The Brighton Digital Festival returns this September, and there’s a hugely impressive range of events. We’re offering a few events into the mix, all of which revolve around DIY digital art and film.
We’ve started teaching workshops on coding for the web. Our current course is aimed at beginners (there’ll be intermediate and advanced workshops in future). It’s for people who use the web, but want to get under its skin and learn what it takes to create simple websites and web applications.
