About this event

Why should everyone learn how to code? “Because it teaches you how to think.” Steve Jobs

Yahoo7 and General Assembly invite you to the aMBUSH Project Space at Central Park to celebrate one of Australia’s largest learning events in history.

Presented as part of VIVID Ideas, Code in the Park is about inspiring everyone to learn the basics of coding, to acquire a new digital skill for the future of work, innovation and education - to transform thinkers into creators.

We’ll teach you how to start and you’ll discover all the creative and entrepreneurial things you can do with code at an afternoon full of inspirational panels, talks, interactive demos and a coding lesson for beginners from Australia’s leaders in tech, creativity and innovation.

A series of inspired Code Clinics for budding entrepreneurs looking to bring their creative vision or business ideas to life will also be run by BCG Digital Venture's team of entrepreneurial experts.

No matter what background or level of knowledge you have, from young and old, those just starting out in their careers to CEO's - this event this is for everyone, join us and support diversity in tech!
