We're in a digital age
We’re in a digital age where health technology is deemed to be at the forefront of healthcare services.
To keep ahead of the game, as clinicians, we need to equip ourselves with the basic knowledge required to understand app development and web design.
This entry level workshop is aimed at those with a curiosity or interest in health technology, yet not sure where to start.
Leave the workshop learning how to;
- Building a basic responsive website
- Designing a healthcare related app
- Our top resources for self learning and advice on those who wish to learn more in-depth programming
No previous knowledge required, however you do need to have a generally good user experience of the internet.
Due to the popularity of our last sold out workshop in November, we’re looking to hold this event again in 2017!
If you’re interested in being one of the first to be notified when the workshop date is announced, please register your interest below.
Please note that the advertised date is not set.
