What’s on at CodeClan this April

People chatting in groups at a CodeClan event

It’s fair to say that March was a big month for us here at CodeClan.

In case you missed it, we got ourselves a wonderful new home in Inverness, opened applications for our brand-new Data Analysis course in Edinburgh, and celebrated placing more than 500 of our software development graduates into work.

As for April, let’s just say it’s not getting any quieter. There are loads of opportunities for you to engage with us, visit us, find out what’s happening on campus and start learning!
