Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business

A Brighter Future in Tech is Coming to Wales


Codez Academy is teaming up with the Welsh Government this October to promote a brighter future in tech right here in Wales.

Set to be held on October 23 at Techniquest in Cardiff Bay, the inaugural Future in Tech event will be a celebration of diversity and upcoming talent in the tech sector, whilst also showcasing potential job opportunities available to those in the initial stages of their careers and those who are looking for new employment opportunities. From teaching us to nurture the digital skills in our young at the early stages to promoting gender balance across the industry, this event will truly have it all.

As the brainchild of Codez Academy Founder, Dean Jenkins in partnership with Welsh Government the event has gained a wide range of support from organisations operating in Wales including Mobilise, the CGI Group, BT, The Learning and Work Institute, The Princes Trust, DevOpsGuys, Re:Program, Chwarae Teg and many more.

Speaking of the event, Dean said:

“There are over 3,000 new jobs available in the tech sector every year so by putting digital skills first, it opens up a whole world of new opportunities for a lot of people. At this event, we wanted to display the training opportunities available in Wales right now and show attendees that anyone can develop their digital knowledge and build a career in tech if they simply put their mind to it.”

The day is jammed packed with opportunities for skills building, workshops, expert talks and the chance to network with businesses.

Dean Jenkins, founder of Codez Academy who will be running coding workshops on the day, said:

“We’ve been planning this event for some time and it’s fantastic to have so much support behind it across such a range of organisations.  Encouraging the development of digital skills in an ever-growing industry across Wales is paramount and the more we can do to make things as accessible as possible for everyone the better.  Promoting diversity, being as inclusive as possible and ensuring this becomes part of business culture across the board is key to realising change. The more we help people see that they can work in tech and encourage the development of skills, the more we will see it benefit the industry as a whole.”

The free event will be held between 9.30am – 4pm at Techniquest on October 23. Tickets are limited so if you’d like to attend, you need to be quick.
