Meet the team.

Instructors

After a varied career working in the tech and training industries for over 15 years, I joined CodeClan in 2016 as an Instructor when the Glasgow campus was opened.

Ally

I have got 20 years of experience coding. I have been in the PSD instructor team for 2 years now. Prior to CodeClan I was working in the NHS for 7 years helping staff learn how to roster and to implement, test and design an eRostering system.

Jennifer

I'm a Statistics graduate with over ten years of industry experience in Data Science and Actuarial functions in the public and private sector. In my spare time I enjoy making visualisations and predictive models with football data.

Jamie

Hi pals, I'm Ash. I work in the Glasgow CodeClan Campus. I like coding because it's like solving a bunch of little puzzles to make something bigger. Usually this is something practical but I like to make random generators.

Ash

Hi all, I'm a web developer who has been part of the CodeClan instructor team since 2015. My role involves helping to create and adapt the PSD curriculum so that it always meets industry requirements and optimises student learning.

Keith

Hi, my name is Neringa. I was a data student here at CodeClan before joining the team as a Technical Assistant. I love solving puzzles, which is why I was drawn to coding! I especially love using RShiny to create dashboards.

Neringa

I was an Accountancy grad and enjoyed a rewarding career in retail management before graduating from CodeClan in 2022. CodeClan changed my life and I am living proof it’s never too late to learn tech. I am passionate about inspiring other career-changers to take the same incredible journey and find their dream job.

Sean

Hi my name is David, I’m a CodeClan Data Analysis graduate. Since graduating I’ve undertaken my own Scottish Tech Army projects to help others and improve data literacy in the UK.

David

Hey, my name is John, I joined CodeClan in June of 2021. I have a ADHD/Dyslexic brain and feel that CodeClan offers a non-traditional route into the world of software development that compared to traditional paths that are not created for neurodivergent folks like myself. My passions outside of work include no-gi Brazilian jiu jitsu, Dota2 and generally being an unashamed nerd, loving 2000AD, obscure terrible films and PC gaming!

John

Having an educational background in cultural studies and linguistics, and then thoroughly enjoying a good number of years of teaching English, I am truly excited to be able to carry over what I have been able to learn into my more recent passion - software development. A CodeClan graduate myself, I am delighted to now have the chance to give back some of what I received as a student.

Stan

Hi, I’m Sky. I’m from New Jersey, Lenapehoking and came to Edinburgh to study art. I now enjoy dancing and accompanying students on their journeys through programming.

Sky

Hello everyone, my name is John. I have a degree in ecology. I have carried out research in conservation biology analysing the effects of pesticides on British butterflies, and tourism on wild reindeer.

John

Before joining CodeClan I worked as photo lab technician (fancy name for developing photographs), a specialist pensions administrator and trainer. I've had a lifelong passion for coding, starting when I got my first computer at age 6 (an Amiga 500). In my spare time I like to paint miniature figures to use in various board games.

John

I'm a physics graduate who completed CodeClan's Professional Data Analysis course after spending many years analysing manufacturing processes in the microelectronics industry. I enjoyed CodeClan so much I ended up joining the team!

James

I have a background primarily in UI/UX and User Research. I’m currently a TA helping on the Professional Software Development course whilst also expanding my knowledge and skills in Data Science, specifically in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. I am also an avid enthusiast of Robotics and all things Python.

Aqib

I was a graphic designer and PM, but spent the last 6 years as a SAHM before graduating from CodeClan in 2022. I adore empowering others with knowledge and positive thinking. Outside of CodeClan I love Wordle and Sudoku, my houseplants, and I’m interested in pretty much everything!

Colette

Hey I'm Meera, I've been at CodeClan for a few months now, first as a student and now on the other side. I find coding to be creative and fun, I also love to cook, read and play the violin when I'm not coding!

Meera

After a previous career as a games tester, and a few years merely paying the bills in unfulfilling jobs, I decided to do the CodeClan Professional Software Development course in late 2016 (Cohort E7). I’ve recently returned to CodeClan for my second stint as an Instructor after working as a web developer.

Alex

I worked as a high school teacher and a technical engineer before I joined Code Clan. I love to solve puzzles like Sudoku and that’s why I enjoy writing programs to solve the everyday problem and to make the world a little bit better.

Randolph

After years working in the insurance industry, I switched to study computer science before working as a software engineer. I love to help people learn to code and can appreciate the challenge of making a big change in your career- something I hope to draw on in my role as an Assistant Instructor.

Ben

I worked in hardware design (PCBs and chip layout) for around 15 years before joining CodeClan as a student. I had such a great time that after working in industry for a time I returned as an instructor. I particularly enjoy building games and web apps.

Steve

I'm a CodeClan grad (E20) who went on to work at two Edinburgh startups (Python, Ruby on Rails, Typescript, React & React Native). I have come back to teach in the software development course because I love empowering people with code.

Mar

I worked in hospitality before studying at CodeClan. I graduated with cohort E56 and decided to stay and help others learn how to code. When I’m not coding I enjoy playing video games! Some of my favourite games include Final Fantasy XIV, Hollow Knight and the Yakuza franchise.
