About this Event




After selling out the first event in a matter of days, we've added another workshop date to be able to help more people navigate their way around tech.

What is Tech for Non Tech?

Tech for Non Tech is a one day interactive workshop that will help you build your digital fluency. No question is too small! You'll gain a holistic view of big picture trends and the nitty-gritty of daily digital processes.

We've ben lucky enough to be sponsored by the Digital Innovation Festival to put on this event for a fraction of its usual cost. Thank you to the Victorian Government for sponsoring this event.

Who is it for?

Anyone who wants to learn more about tech and digital! The skills you'll learn in this one day workshop will be transferable to so much of the work you do. Plus, you'll be able to impart your newfound digital wisdom on other people in your job and in your network!

What will I learn?

We'll be demystifying tech jargon and introducing techniques to explain technical concepts, and the core concepts of web development.

You'll gain an understanding of digital ecosystems and will walk away confident in your ability to translate technical concepts.

Some of the key topics we'll cover are:

  • Introducing the Internet
  • Tackling Jargon 
  • Core Concepts of Web Development
  • Coding Languages
  • How Developers Make Apps
  • Technical Debt
  • Testing
