Flashback to my first few weeks at CodeClan, I was asked to make a short video to celebrate one of the Cohorts having finished their 16 week course. So I finished it and good old fashioned me got a bit side tracked with adding in an introduction that eventually ended up being a full scale logo intro which you can see above.

CodeClan are a recent Scotland based startup who focus on transforming they way in which technology based skills are learned. Tuition in skills such as web development, UX, Agile are taught in an immersive environment – with the main “professional software development” course being a short course which gets its students job ready in just 16 weeks. They also offer bespoke courses to companies wishing to upgrade their staffs skills in tech.
My connection with CodeClan first started in January 2017 when I started a 6 month placement – which was a requirement of my marketing degree at Edinburgh Napier. When I finished the placement in May 2017, I must have done alright because they asked me to stay on in an upgraded role of marketing assistant over the summer. This also continued on a freelance basis after the summer when I returned to uni – for which I continued to work with CodeClan on marketing projects as best I could around my studies.
