Way to code: adult coding groups driving an upskilling revolution - inspiring stories of kids who code have been a regular occurrence in technology news, making names like James Whelton and Jordan Casey as recognisable as any Irish entrepreneur’s. With the support of non-profits like CoderDojo and other volunteer groups, these youngsters have taken it upon themselves to learn valuable skills and apply them to projects that solve problems or simply offer something fun to do.
Yet coding is not just for kids. Nor is it just for computer scientists or programming students. Grassroots coding organisations aimed at teaching adults how to code have been springing up worldwide, and many of these groups are open to anyone willing to learn.
