The training staff were fantastic and the pace of the day was brilliant. It starts of slowly enough not to put you off but by the end of the day things were moving quick enough to replicate the stress I imagine most developers feel with clients breathing down their necks. I was sceptical that they would be able to cover off everything that was needed in the one day session, but have left with a whole new skill set and a much fuller understanding of the digital space.
Simon Adamson Group Account Director 1000 Heads
Coding, the web and the internet are such a vital part of our lives to understand. The Code in a Day course means that by the end of the day you don't just understand better, you're actually coding! I think everyone should do it.
Rachael Marsh Head of Casework LawWorks
I loved "learning through doing" and it felt like a real achievement to "complete a project" by the end of the day. I feel loads more confident with digital stuff now. The staff and course leaders were awesome too. I have a way better understanding of the digital world, and feel much more confident both talking about and thinking about the world of computers/ code. I'm going to continue to learn coding. I feel quite evangelical about it! I'm trying to think of ways I can bring coding/ decoded to the North East!
Laura Brewis Programme Manager New Writing North
I never thought digital could become so clear and so exciting in one day. The best day's training I've had, not only because I enjoyed it, but also because of all the possibilities that are now open to me. Eight years of hearing the word 'digital'; one day to finally get what it means.
Zara Bailey Freelance Marketing Consultant WPP
Learning to code so quickly is a truly empowering experience. Gone are my days of self-deprecation about my technological capabilities! Being taught the basics in one day over delicious food and fun company, sharing and working through problems and small triumphs, was how learning should be. I've never known a classroom be so much fun. Thank you, Team Decoded!
Clare Bowen Head of Creative Development RAB
The Decoded experience was valuable to our entire Investment Committee. It gives us a better knowledge base to be able to evaluate potential new investments and portfolio companies, and provides a higher level of credibility in the marketplace.
Karen McCormick Partner Beringea LLP
I found the entire day to be enjoyable, from understanding the history to developing our own app. I am already thinking about ways to automate and enhance some of the work I do through building apps. I feel more equipped to understand the coding ecosystem and where to find out info if required - I feel more resourceful.
Shiva Shankar Business Analyst Microsoft
I'm in awe of how clever our developers are! Even the simplest interactions are so intricate and demand a type of logic that doesn't come naturally to me. It's whetted my appetite to have a go at doing more myself!
Lou Oakham Deputy Head of User Experience British Council
The Decoded course concept about "...how to code in a day..." was difficult for me to understand at the beginning, but now I can clearly start decoding some app or website's functionality. What they taught me was such a big help!!! Try this course and spread the word... these guys are amazing!
Giovanni Dicandio Senior Business System Analyst Microsoft
It was fascinating to learn more about the different elements involved in coding something. I will be able to speak more confidently with clients about the digital work we do.
Michael Flood Account Director Imagination
I thought Decoded was one of the best training days I have ever been on. The whole day, atmosphere, setting, trainers and all staff were fantastic and I learnt a lot!
Hannah Nutting Display Account Manager Microsoft Advertising
The day gave me confidence that the effort I'd already put in to starting learning HTML was going in the right direction, and I learned in about an hour what would probably have taken me a few months to twig about CSS (mainly due to lack of time and confidence). I know where to go to carry on learning, and learn I believe I will. And it's great to know I can send an email to the Decoded team if I get stuck. I'm sure this investment will pay off in the months and years ahead.
Nataly Marinovic Senior UX Specialist Croatian Telecom
I have always had respect for developers but now that respect has been taken to another level. But the most important thing I learned was how they view a brief and the break down of function, variables and logic... I will begin to integrate the two more and work closer with my dev counterparts through out the process. I loved this course. I would recommend it to anyone with zero knowledge on coding. It provides the perfect overview of the history of code, while providing a hands on experience in learning how to develop a web app and how it should be approached. A great learn-by-doing course with fabulous teachers. Thank you!
Priya Shah SVP, Director User Experience Hill Holliday
Decoded gave me an enjoyable and astonishingly in-depth introduction to both how to code, and to the history and mind-set behind coding. The knowledge I gained from the day gave me a platform that means that if I need to pick up coding in the future, I know where to get started and (more importantly) where to look if I get stuck! If I do decide to continue coding I'll know exactly where to look and what I'm looking for. I now have to opportunity to develop business ideas, considering the digital side of the products as well as the physical side.
Neil Alliston Student Oxford University
You have to take this course if you create ideas in our digital world. If you're an art director, designer or writer you’ll appreciate your developers more, but most importantly, you’ll be able to collaborate in better ways. What an amazing day. Yes, you really will learn to code in one day - and you’ll have fun! The teachers are amazing. I will seek out more learning. I'm not sure I'm a coder, but I'm going to give it a go. At the very least to grasp it more conceptually. I think we need to train Account folks on coding; not to create code, but to understand the process and craftsmanship that goes into it so they can better manage clients and understand that GOOD coding takes time.
Rob Rich EVP, GCD Hill Holliday
I enjoyed the whole day. It is something I have wanted to do for a long time but didn't know where to start. It has given me a creative focus. Fantastic course, inspiring and enthusiastic teachers; Decoded isall about the great teaching in a relaxed space.
I will begin coding my own website(s), and be able to interact with those who are expert coders, both in personal life and in a work environment. Giving up a Saturday and paying £500 meant the 'code in a day' course was a big personal investment, but it was 100% worth it. A brilliant day spent with great tutors, a diverse mix of motivated people, not only learning a lot, but also producing something of real use in just a few hours.
Kevin Watson Head of CVM Virgin Media
What a great experience! I feel enlightened, inspired and empowered! Everyone should do this course, not just digital geeks. I'll be evangelising about Code in a Day for some time.
Lorna Westwood Head of eCommerce and Online Marketing Pandora Jewellery UK
Seeing how all the pieces fit together helped me make a lot more sense of all of the jargon I'd been hearing for years - now it's useful! Being able to break that big picture down into it's component parts means I have a much greater sense of *how* it's done, which is going to help me immensely in using technology creatively to solve problems. The amount you learn in one day is honestly amazing and very empowering for anyone who's aware of the power of technology but currently feels stuck on the outside.
Scott Cooper Consultant The Sandpit
I have recommended Decoded to people and will continue to do so. Excellent. Can't wait to take another course. It's like finally learning a language that people around you use constantly but you never bothered to learn.
Joao Medeiros Start Editor Wired Magazine
I came into the Code in a Day course with a basic knowledge of HTML and some industry context. I left feeling like a whole new world had been opened up to me and that whereas walking in I had the jigsaw pieces, the day drew the guide picture for me.The team are amazingly charismatic, utterly knowledgeable, obviously love what they do and have endless patience. Its a heady mix and I've already been recommending like mad. Do it - you wont regret it!
Laura Ongaro Head of Product Marketing Rackspace
The Decoded day was demystifying and delightful. If you are in a business (and probably in teaching and other spheres as well); if your customers/clients use your firm's website or apps; if you have any involvement at all in commissioning websites or apps; get yourself down to this course. It's frankly an essential part of any modern business education. Seriously. And you don't have to be a nerd to get it; being averagely normal is fine. I thought it was the most significant day of learning I have had in decades.
Chris Matthews Principal SutherlandsPugh
Like a sky dive; it was exhilarating to leap into real code and come out not only unscathed but thirsty to find out more. Our two friendly, straight talking experts were able to steer us through the tasks so that we each succeeded in creating a mobile app. No fear - no limits!
Julie Dawson COO localgiving.com
I learned a lot. I'll better understand the pieces of data visualisation that I come into contact with on the web or in publications... Getting our hands dirty with code was great. It's really satisfying to make something at the end of the day and there was wonderment when we fired up our personal social data and learned about our friends worlds.
Mareka Carter Art Director BBH
Right level of geekiness vs empathetic coaching/teaching skills
Will England CFO 7Digital
It opened my eyes to the amount and ease of access to my data and how my friends' data is connected to mine... The Decoded team spoke in my language to introduced me to the world of social data, and its possibilities for my clients and teams.
Will Harvey Creative Technologist Ogilvy
By far the best training course I've ever been on!
Mandy Rayment Communications Director Glue Isobar
Just do it. It’ll change how you see the digital world.
Mark Earls Author Herd: How to Change Mass Behaviour
The Code in a Day workshop was inspiring and insightful.
Sara Montgomery Head of Guardian Books The Guardian
Decoded have 'Digital Enlightenment' stickered in tiny lettering on their windows. Two little words have never spoken so true.
Anthony Harris Account Manager Publicis
It's the most I've learnt in a day since a sex education in 1982. Only this time the information is genuinely useful and relevant to my everyday rather than the video of two chickens that left me confused for years.
Jason Stockwood CEO Xbridge
The break up of the day was perfect - a good balance between lecturing and 'hands-on' activities. It was a terrific experience and one I found extremely valuable. I now have a better understanding of code and feel I can communicate more easily with members of our development team. I also have a better understanding of the time frames certain work we are about to carry out will take. Learning to code in a day may sound unlikely, but the folks at Decoded de-geek the mystique and make it accessible for everyone. You'll leave with a greater understanding of how websites and apps work and feel more confident working in the increasingly digital landscape most companies now find themselves operating in. Highly recommended.
Mark Gilbert Head of Editorial Content The FA
A brilliant day, hugely informative and most importantly fun. I'd recommend it to everyone and I probably will.
David Mahoney Director of Content Policy Ofcom
Just the right pace, size of group and balance between presentation and hands on stuff. And you are all lovely people too!
Alex Butler Co-founder KindredHQ
Decoded is done in a wonderfully lyrical and intuitive way. It’s really well taught and hands on.
Matthew Ovington UX Architect Paddy Power
Decoded is a must for anyone who wants to understand the world we now live in. It looks different now. Go and do it!
John Scott Strategist M2M Media
Attending Decoded was like being let into the magic circle. Before the world of code and digital design was a complete mystery to me. I now know how they cut the lady in half.
Paul Bainsfair Director General IPA
Decoded team have put together a unique course that really makes the potentially arcane world of coding relate to the real world of great apps that make our life better.
Steven Bonner Digital Marketing Manager The FA
Decoded was the best training I have ever done, it was insightful and challenging, taking us all beyond our expectations in what we were capable in a really fun and dynamic way. Will recommended to anyone.
Katie Hyson Think Big Internal Manager Telefonica UK
A great way to spend a day de-mystifying the web and its ways. I have worked in online media sales side for years and didn't take the time or make the opportunity to learn. Decoded lifted the veil in a day. Magical!
Jamie Noble Vertical Partnership Manager Microsoft
Last week, I learnt how to code. In a day. I built my own website, with a geo-location function and neat design, and emerged empowered...The ad industry desperately needs more of these pollinated skills.
Claire Beale Editor Campaign
It has demystified the whole area of coding...Will you be able to code in a day - yes. We all use technology in our daily lives so isn't it time to find out how it works?
Richard Eccles Head of Custom Web Solutions Thomson Reuters
So very useful to get an overview of an area that most never get a chance to understand. Broken down into easy to digest parts that were fun! Well worth doing.
Ross Mahon Google Apps Education Evangelist Google
Decoded was an absolutely fantastic course pitched at just the right level ... [It] has made me feel much more at home in a technology company! Oh, and the food was amazing too.
Rosa Birch Policy Team Facebook
Decoded, it's taken me 22 years to find you and we only spent 1 day together :(... A fantastic course, professionally led, innovative co-creative learning, uber funky learning space and loads of fun.
John Lennon Director Nokia
My day at Decoded has completely changed how I feel talking about code. I now get what I'm saying... and the implications of working with code.
Robyn Exton Founder Dattch.com
It completely demystified what happens behind the scenes of web content; a must for anyone who doesn't want to feel illiterate in this day and age.
Fernando Balzaretii Management Entrepreneur First
Don’t think about it. Don’t worry about what it is exactly. Simply go do it. I had no idea what to expect, but Decoded delivered more than I’d hoped for. Digital Enlightenment is a very good summation.
Jason Gormley Creative Director & Founder Dark Age
Decoded provided exactly, what was described 'Coding in One day'... I can clearly say that I have a significantly better understanding on the approach to web/app development.
Nigel Prankard Manager Panasonic - IPTV & DTV Solutions Centre
Great day to get a basic understanding of coding. Friendly and enthusiastic teachers that show you have the world of code at your fingertips! Definitely inspired me to pursue my interest further. If I can learn the basics, anyone can!
Kat Bednarczyk Business Marketing Manager Spotify
Code doesn't now look like a Martian language. - I will have greater confidence in talking to programmers - It's also given me enough knowledge to want to know more....Whether you want the confidence to talk to programmers or the inspiration to become one, Decoded is essential learning.
Richard Fearn Director The Friday Club London
Everyone was so friendly, knowledgeable, friendly and patient! Their ability to communicate an alien language in Laymen's terms was outstanding... Decoded genuinely provided the most fascinating, exciting and eye opening learning experience I've had since graduating Uni.
Matt Thomas Producer Addiction
The Decoded Course was one of the best pieces of training I've ever done. It was really accessible and helped demystify the imposing world of development. It also whetted my appetite to learn more [and] inspired me to get my kids into coding as soon as possible.
Barney O'Kelly Senior Manager of Digital Communications Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer
I can honestly say it was one of the best courses I have attended. While coding is not something I need directly in my role, learning about it has made a whole lot of things make a lot more sense. Decoded genuinely make a subject that can seem inaccessible, very accessible.
Anna Hopwood Managing Partner "adam&eve DDB"
A fantastic course worthy of anyone's time - both fun and comprehensive in content, I left Decoded feeling inspired and more confident about my ability to code in the future. The teachers, facilities and setup of Decoded made for a great learning environment!
Antonia Redgrove Analyst Qedis
It was great to understand the history of code and see how things have developed. It was reassuring to have some of the myths dispelled. The teachers were really great... they managed to keep it fresh throughout.
Kate Harwood Junior Account Manager Livity
Susan Hosking Creative Director Mother
Matt Davis Freelance Graphic Designer
It'll impact my work in a way where I can easier understand what's happening at the backend of all the digital projects I'm working on. It'll make me more capable of judging whether or not an idea is feasible or can be done within a certain timeframe.
Henrik Dufke Creative Mother
The most rewarding aspect was definitely building a multi platform solution by yourself and seeing it work before your eyes...Those 'aha' moments of understanding why something works the way it does, and when you begin to write your own piece of code and see if come to fruition in front of your eyes.
Ciaran Burke Consultant Dachis Group
It has opened up my understanding of the digital world. What was once a mystery now seems so clear. Like that bit in the matrix where he takes the blue pill.
Craig Mawdsley Head of Planning AMV BBDO
I was refreshed to find that the course ignited in me a passion, curiosity and enthusiasm for the subject matter at a level that I wasn't expecting. I haven't stopped talking about the day since, and have resolved to now find the time to create my first website - coded by hand!
Laura Hodgson Senior Associate MacIntyre Hudson Advisory Services LLP
I now have a full understanding of the three web languages and I now have the confidence to go ahead and work on my own projects. It will also really help me when working with designers and developers.
Edward Sinclair Web Manager Imagination
A really genuine warm, knowledgeable and authentic style of delivery. I've been to hundreds of training courses and this was really top class.
Ian Fordham Director The Education Foundation
The coding itself has made such an impact already on my creative ideas and whether things are possible, how long they will take and how they can be done.
Laila Millborrow Art Director OgilvyOne
The whole day was fantastic. For me there was definitely an 'omg' moment when the page I created actually worked. That was one of the most exciting things I've done for a long time.
Martina Langer Creative Director of Beauty Grey Advertising
I really feel like I could talk credibly to a coder, given we can now actually speak the same language.
Sophie Griffiths Account Manager OgilvyOne
It was the best insight into the world of the web I have heard, it dispelled the myths and helped understand how it all works.
Patrick Mills Director of Professional Development IPA
It opened my eyes to something wondrous. Before this course, all these languages seemed out of my reach (like Urdu or Italian) and now they don't!
Rod Banner Investor EngageSciences
Jaime Tolentino Engage Strategist Quirk London
There's an inner geek in (almost) everyone. Decoded helps bring that out in a fun, gentle way and by doing so, gives you the understanding and tools to go out and be a lot more useful...bring on the open-source revolution!
Tom Farrand Co-founder The Pipeline Project and Good For Nothing
Decoded training is a must for anyone in the areas of creativity. With the continuous growth in digital technology, coding is part of everyone’s future.
Olly Wood Art Director School of Communication Arts
Fantastic workshop that clearly removed the myth that coding is the preserve of the geeky!
Sebastian Stoddard Co-founder The School Collective
So pleased finally to learn how the web and its constituent parts fit together. No longer will I feel like I'm blagging it when talking about the internet!
Edward Drax Co-founder EtonPreneurs
Many aspects contributed to a top-rate experience: the structure of the day; pace just right; the space; the food; the macs; Sam; the ideas covered of course; plus the aftercare by way of files & resources
Caroline Fox Chartered Accountant
I loved the whole course. It was such an eye opener. I have now downloaded Coda and will practise coding in my spare time so I don't forget what I have learned.
Deborah Akinpelu Project Manager Pearson
It really joined up all the dots to show the bigger picture. It will help me understand the work of my colleagues better and enable me to have more useful conversations with them. And what amazing hospitality and location – just a lovely place to be for a day!
Alison Button Research Manager BBC iPlayer
Whilst digital has been a large part of my agency life for some time now, this one day course provides a really constructive, enjoyable and valuable learning experience. It helps you understand the nuts and bolts of how to make things work in the digital space.
Mike Cullis Owner and Consultant Independent MC
The Decoded model should be standard issue for anyone commissioning digital work.
James Hamilton Harding Human Sciences Research Council
You proved me that it's possible to learn to code in one day. It was a very enjoyable day and structured very well. I'm confident about what I've learned and I can't wait to start coding. Thank you!
Aga Golebiewska Paddy Power
Decoded made me a better commissioner of digital stuff and a part time tinkerer too. Highly recommended.
Roland Harwood 100% Open Innovation
Decoded taught me as much about coding as I could have possibly hoped in one day, which is to say a great deal. The course has hugely evolved the conversations I am now able to have at work. A stunning location, a wonderful lunch, and the latest Macbook Airs to play with did no harm to the overall experience.
Matt Vickers Account Director Ogilvy One
Too many training days overpromise and underdeliver. Decoded makes an outrageous promise - learn to code in a day - and then remarkably delivers on it. Astonishing! An unforgettable experience that I know will enhance my work and life with an understanding of what coders actually do and how digital things are made.
Tony Regan Consultant Brand Performance
It was the best training day I've ever been on.... and will have a lifelong impact on how I feel about the web. In exchange for 8 hours of my time, I walked out of Decoded feeling 100 times more able to engage with clients on technical & complex digital discussions than I did when I walked in.
Sophie Payne Business Director Publicis
It's not that I thought they were lying, I just couldn't see how that would happen. It did.
Louise Jack Fast Company
It was wonderful. I learnt more in a day than I have since the day I learnt to ride a bike. Think of what that lets you do. This is the digital equivalent. Genius. Never made us feel like fools - instead, they took us gently by the hand and led us into wonderland.
Paul Kitcatt Chief Creative Officer Kitcatt Nohr Digitas
I LOVED the course. I came away 500 times more confident than I was before, and fully intend to continue learning about coding. I feel much more knowledgeable about what developers and web designers do, which is very useful in my work (as an editor).
Becky Gardiner Comment Editor Guardian
I attended the course with a view to being able to code/build apps but also to understand the language and logic that coders in our own business use - both aims were met and exceeded. What the guys are doing at Decoded deserves full credit and I cannot speak highly enough of them. Any company that creates customers as advocates is obviously doing something right!
Connor Heaney Solutions Director Berkley Projects
Everyone in business today needs to get a grip on this. We are sending strategists, creatives and some team management people. When we have a better-than-skin-deep understanding of technology, two things happen: we have better ideas and we also treat our internal and external partners in a considerably more effective manner.
Mel Exon Founder BBH Labs
I completely loved the whole day - I found it amazingly empowering. This means I can now understand every day conversations that previously were always very slightly gobbledegook to me. This will hugely increase my confidence in dealing with our digital development department, which I do every day.
Emily Wilson Network Editor Guardian
My Decoded course allowed me to break through a barrier most people will face in the current web space and that barrier is simple understanding. You may not use all of the skills you are taught personally, but you will want to by the end of the course.
Paul Craig Owner Viewtorch Pictures
Fantastic teachers. [They] were knowledgeable, understanding and patient. Keeping us enthralled in the content of the day with their delivery style.
Ben Plain Think Big School Programme Manager O2
It helped me understand the changes that have occurred over the last 20 years and how the different types of coding work together. I've already had ideas about how we could use what we learnt at work.
Julie-Ann Cornelius Senior Forensic Scientist
I had no idea at all about coding so it was a great learning curve. Great facilitators too. It was rewarding to get an insight into the role of a developer and I now appreciate the technical teams more. It has given me more confidence as I have a better understanding of the background of the web. It will also help me more with some of the technical discussions in my business.
Steve Brown MD Adconian Media Group
...Decoded – small start up near Silicon roundabout - claims to be able to teach you to code in one day – which sounded perfect for someone like me with a hectic schedule and low attention span. And as if by magic – within a few hours - I had written a small responsive design, web based app that worked out automatically where you were...
Nic Newman Digital Strategist Nic Newman & Associates
A fantastic day at Decoded, everyone should take this course. I went from knowing nothing to coding my own app in one day. Now I can code.
Kirsty Britz Social Business & Sustainability O2
Decoded does what it says on the tin - it unlocks the code of code which is an essential part of modern communications. I understood better at a conceptual level the technologies that I talk so much about and I loved the fact that I got my hands dirty digitally and developed a multi-platform app myself within a day!
Amelia Torode Head of Digital and Innovation Good Relations
Decoded is an invaluable introduction to the digital world, how it has developed and how it effects all of us as business people. It is a stimulating day combining learning about the fundamentals underpinning the internet with real hands on experience of writing code and building your own digital offering.
James Robson Director Grant Thornton
The most enjoyable part was programming our own apps and adding more features step by step - it was a real boost when everything actually worked! It was also great to see such a variety of people on the course showing that coding really is for everyone!
Holly Smith Web Coordinator NSPCC
At the end of the day they some how magically make you want to learn more about coding.
Louis Li Compliance Technician SEGA
The Code in a Day course exceeded my (high) expectations by far. I knew nothing about coding. I expected the day to educate me to the point where I could make a start. In fact by the end of the day I'd already made a start, and then some, in coding.
Danny Callaghan Business Manager Legal and General
A superlative introduction to coding - it has given me genuine confidence to build my own website and to understand the digital realm infinitely deeper.
Luke Thomson Founder & CEO ReChannel
What an amazing day - felt like an excited teenager to be creating something working on the web out of so little in so little time. I'm inspired to go and build on these basis to get better. Frankly, I think this should be a compulsory part of the school curriculum!
Ollie Mustill Senior Account Manager DraftFCB
The course really helped give me a broad understanding of the dynamics of website design both on mobile and desktop. It has also left me wanting and needing to know even more. A very well organised and structured day. Thanks Decoded!
Neil Howlett Commercial Director Alliance Surgical plc
Interesting, inspiring and thoroughly enjoyable. I'd recommend Decoded to anyone - even my Mum would enjoy it... Best 1-day course I've been on.
Dan Shone Copywriter DraftFCB
I had a great day and would recommend anyone with an interest in coding to attend, you will come away with an insight into the mystical world of code!
Paul Charles Branch Manager Selwood
I learned more about the internet in one day than I have in 15 years of using it.
Pippa Wright Author and Publisher
I no longer see coding as an enigma - the day gave me a solid foundation in three core languages for use on websites. I feel I can now talk to our designers with confidence, and even make small tweaks to our website's CSS.
Matt Cooper Marketing Executive Nimbus Hosting
This has to be one of the best courses I've gone on and I can't wait to get started on doing my own coding. I'm not a techy type of person but this really caught my imagination.
Graham Ellor Planner EHS 4D Group
I walked in to the day with no knowledge whatsoever! I came out confident enough to have a go! I now have a buzz to put into practice what I have learnt.
Nicola Whatmore Business Manager O2
To actually have produced something tangible at the end of the day was very satisfying.
Carol Fawkes Researcher London University
Coding is now not the preserve of techies with 10,000 hours of experience and expertise. For me, it was akin to the first time I went scuba diving: the sense of wonder as you dip below the waves for the first time and the true landscape of the sea bed is revealed.
Alliott Cole Ventures Team Octopus Ventures
I found the course incredibly interesting and now feel like I at least know what everyone's talking about. I feel like I can now go into a restaurant and order, maybe even write a brief letter but I want to know more so I can write a book!
Sam Baker Editor-in-Chief Red Magazine
It has made a huge difference to how confident I feel with looking at code and being able to converse with the developers. It's no longer scary.
Farah Barnabas Digital Marketing Communications Manager Freshfields
A fantastic course in which to learn the history and basics of coding delivered by friendly, approachable trainers in a relaxed atmosphere. Creating my own app was extremely rewarding.
Fran Turner Project Manager - Operations Urbanest UK Ltd
There can't be many people with such a deep understanding of code who also have the ability to share their expertise in such an engaging way!
Lawrence Bleach COO Simplify Digital
Decoded reinvents the training format whilst giving genuine context to language of the web. Charming trainers and imaginative setting combine to persuasive effect. The workshop excels both as a refresher course and first contact with code. Highly recommended.
Adam Powers Head of User Experience BBH
I enrolled on the course because I thought it would improve my communications with suppliers, which it no doubt will. But I also found it inspiring from a creative perspective as by deconstructing the process of development you begin to understand what can be done.
Lois Bray Marketing Communications Executive The Copyright Licensing Company
The mystery around coding has been dissolved and I'm genuinely inspired to learn more coding where possible.
Josefine Fox Marketing Executive Paddy Power
Fantastic workshop that clearly removed the myth that coding is the preserve of the geeky!
Sebastian Stoddart Co-founder The School Collective
It completely demystified what happens behind the scenes of web content; a must for anyone who doesn't want to feel illiterate in this day and age.
Fernando Balzaretii Management Entrepreneur First
Doing code work directly was immensely empowering and enlightening. Working as a team made it much more fun and supported group learning!
Lettie Conrad Manager Online Product Management SAGE Publication
I appreciate the technical teams more and it has given me more confidence as I have a better understanding of the background of the web. It will help me more with some of the technical discussions in my business.
Andrew Lowe Digital Manager Conde Nast UK
It was consistently useful and informative. I wasn't expecting the history of the internet to be that useful or relevant in some ways, but it was an excellent start and fed beautifully into the rest of the day. In my job I've often had to beg developers to help me develop ideas or hack things together for me. Trying myself just seemed too complex or daunting. I feel that I can now start to do some simple things well and also structure more complex ideas in such a way that I can break it into discrete parts.
Chris Moran SEO Editor Guardian
Excellent. Decoded managed to make a difficult and potentially dry subject accessible and interesting.
Rhiannon Griffiths Head of Research Guardian
