Blog from a Girl Geek up North

A technology loving, girl geek, Digital Skills Training Manager for MadLab’s community learning, and a passion for organising events in my spare time. Self developing, and autodidact, and determined to succeed, I write my own blog, I taught myself to code in Python, and have built several WordPress websites, and studied for my Maths A-Level (for fun).

I’m the head organiser for BarCamp Manchester, the Founder of CodeUp UK, and co-organiser of Django Girls and Rails Girls Manchester. I am the Code Club Champion for the North West, a Raspberry Pi Certified Educator, National Coding Week Ambassador & Pi-Top Champion.

I have a Level 3 Award in Education and Training, and I deliver Digital Skills training for children and adults. Over the last few years I have developed a number of schemes including Digital Skills for Salford (Salford Third Sector Consortium), Digital Skills for Women Manchester (Manchester City Council), 7 languages in 7 days (National Coding Week), Online Safety for Parents and Carers (Tameside Council), and Code Club Train a Trainer.

This blog is a collection of my musings, experiences and wacky days out. I hope you enjoy reading,

  • Wow you are an industry lol. Not having GCE (now GCSE) has held me back in my career. I’m hoping to rectify this in the venerable stage of my life as it’s better to be late than never. I would be pleased, therefore, if you would share with me your experience of studying A Level Maths and what sources text books etc you used to accomplish such a feat.
