Young people given access to programming training

Young people enjoying last year’s CoderDojo event with IJYI

Ipswich technology company IJYI has announced it will again be supporting Suffolk Library in giving young people access to programming training.

Ipswich Library will run two ‘CoderDojo’ days in the summer holidays, allowing those between seven and 17 to try out programming. It might be the start of their path into a career in the IT sector.

Laura Hood, marketing manager at IJYI, said: “This event is a great first step on the journey into programming for young people. The whole team at IJYI feel really strongly about encouraging young people into the tech sector and this is a great opportunity to come and spend some time with really experienced developers and have a go at programming.

“We had some fantastic feedback about the CoderDojo event last year so come along and see what it’s all about!”
