Lighthouse Learning Sponsors codebar Brighton

codebar-blog

We’re really excited to sponsor codebar Brighton next week. codebar is a non-profit initiative that facilitates the growth of a diverse tech community by running regular programming workshops. Each codebar session offers young and aspiring developers the opportunity to learn in a safe and supportive environment at their own pace.

Lighthouse Learning employs a growing developer team so we feel it’s vital to get involved in initiatives like codebar to help inspire the developers of the future. Come join us on Tuesday 4th August at Sixty Eight Middle Street. We will be supplying enough pizza for everyone! You can register on the codebar Brighton website.

film-projector Alex Stewart, Director at Lighthouse Learning said: “Anyone can work in development. If you feel like you don’t fit the cookie cutter idea of a developer, that’s all the more reason to go for it. As an employer we know that a diverse team makes a nicer environment to work in but also helps make our product better because different skills and points of view are included. Children’s ed tech is in an awesome field for new developers to consider because it’s fun, technically varied and it’s a growing industry.”
Danielle Barnetche, joint Director said: “Technical ability is vital but broader skills are also important like creativity and the ability to learn. There’s room for people with both traditional and non-traditional backgrounds. It feels like things are moving in the right direction with more of the best developers coming from all walks of life. Companies that keep hiring one type of person will miss out on every level.” casette-recorder

We are currently searching for a new Developer to join our Brighton team. It’s a fantastic opportunity for junior developers. However, don’t just take our word for it!

Mike-Prosser Mike joined Lighthouse Learning summer 2014.“Working at Lighthouse Learning has been a fantastic experience. Coming straight from university I’ve been provided with all the support I could have asked for to learn to work well in a professional, real world environment by everyone on the team and really feel like I’m contributing to something important. Every day brings interesting, fresh challenges that make me feel like I’m constantly growing as a developer.”
