Tech is the new literacy, and you don’t want to get left behind. Come and have a go at coding in this friendly taster session, tailored to people who work in any department, at any level, in any size publisher. This is a session for complete beginners, so no prior programming knowledge is necessary – just a desire to experience some real code and be inspired to learn what code can do for you, your work, your job and your career.

 

Bring your (charged up) laptop, iPad or Chrome book and discover: 

  • how javascript works
  • the difference between HTML and CSS
  • how to harness the power of the Google Books API
  • and more tips you can use to make you a better publisher the week after LBF.

By the end, you will have personal experience of programming, and the inspiration, tools, resources and personal contacts with professional developers to carry on. And you’ll be able to enjoy a huge whoosh of pride when you are no longer bamboozled by techies in website meetings. 

 

The session is run by publisher-turned-programmer Emma Barnes @has_many_books and the team from Consonance, the title management and publishing workflow software used by publishers to bring harmony to their publishing – including Sara O’Connor @saramoohead, previously editorial director at Hot Key Books and now a professional full-stack developer. We’re delighted to take questions before and after the session: get in touch through support@consonance.app
