Coding & Digital Skills Challenges

Coding is the process of using a programming language to get a computer to behave how you want it to, every line of code tells the computer to do something. Learning how to code is a valuable skill to learn in the 21st century economy as a multitude of jobs and careers become available as coding becomes ever more in demand, not just within the technology sector, but also in industries such as finance, manufacturing and health care.
