What's on at the Evening Standard and Google Digital Garage's coding event tomorrow

Evening Standard readers are preparing for our first coding event in Victoria tomorrow in partnership with Google Digital Garage.

If you’re curious about how coding works, or want to learn the difference between HTML, CSS and JavaScript, there is still a chance to book on to the free event, although places are limited.

Google Trainers will be on hand throughout the day to guide you through the basics and answer any questions you may have.

And for those looking to polish their CVs or gain a better understanding of social media are also welcome to book places at the other free workshops and one-to-one sessions running alongside the coding event on the day.

We look forward to seeing you there.
