Tech Insights Sessions
An inspirational gathering of the top names in tech come together to present their insights and ambitions on an array of hot topics in tech. This year Google and Facebook discuss Diversity in Tech, Adyen and Strikepay share their views on how fintech will continue to shape the world. Phorest and Intercom delve into the importance of creativity in developing tech solutions and Trust in Soda share the findings of their whitepaper on Accessibility and present the sites created around this at our joint hackathon.

Community is the beating heart of the Code Institute online campus. This is the spot where learners, alumni and tutors gather daily for peer-to-peer support and hang out socially in the many, many Slack channels we run. At Elevate they welcome learners and hiring partners to themed informal meet-ups including our Coding Careers For Women, Proud Coders, Meet the Mentors and of course our Community, Coffee and Cake gathering!
