Scismic Careers Fair

I attended the Scismic virtual careers fair yesterday (21st July). Excellent event and really useful. I am not looking for biotech jobs, but I did find the CV work shop useful, esp scanning through CVs to pick out key words / skills etc.

Looking forward to future events, workshops, webinars etc.

I decided yesterday that I needed to start over with my LinkedIn account by make a totally fresh profile / account.

So I spent today, doing just that. The result is a nice fresh profile and account here

Still got a few things to iron. But I think it is better than the old one. This will be deleted in due course.


Programming and AI: A Guide for Parents

This was posted to LinkedIn. I am sharing here as it may be of interest to anyone looking at where the industry is moving and gives an idea of what to be learning. It is also important for parents to understand so they can support learning.

I would encourage everyone to learn to code, I would encourage parents to learn what this is about so they can support their children. After all events such as Code Club or the Tech Jam would require parental permission.

It is also important for parents to understand so they can talk to their children about what they are doing, help them find information and sort out the bad information from the good, understanding how to use online forums and importantly stay safe by not sharing personal or private information.

While learning at home is possible, being able to meet up with other developers helps solve problems, builds social skills and you can get help with bigger projects leading to developing team and leadership skills, all very important to employers.

Where to learn (or where to get started)

You can learn these skills from a wide range of providers both physical colleges / universities or via online learning,

The developer roadmap may also be of interest,

While schools can help so can events such as Tech Jams or code club. Adults such as youth workers need to understand this technology so they can encourage the learning and not discourage through not understanding and fear that comes with that.
