Facilitating Diversity-Centred Adult Computing Education

Danielle Johnstone, Caroline Pelletier


This article draws from a dissertation composed of ethnographical study on the work of codebar London, a chapter of an organisation working to diversify the tech work force by offering free programming workshops to under-represented people.
