Instructor / Innovation Developer
Ben works with us as an Innovation Develop, and he’s tasked with delivering weekly innovation sessions to the students on the course. His sessions showcase new techniques and technology to help grow our students’ knowledge beyond the conventional realms of coding.
On a day-to-day basis, Ben can usually be found designing and creating projects for the students to take part in. He also likes to get involved with their current projects and lend a helping hand if the need arises. Ben is always mindful of the role that industry awareness plays for fledgeling developers, so he pushes his students to achieve more to grow their tech skills and self-confidence.
Before joining Code Nation, Ben had gone through a year of university before deciding that it wasn’t for him and signing up to the Code Nation Master Course. After graduating, Ben worked as a junior developer at an agency for about a year, at which point he saw an advert for a position at Code Nation, and he leapt at the chance to return to the Manchester campus.
Beyond work, Ben is a sports fanatic, regularly playing hockey and lacrosse as well as partaking in hiking and climbing away from the sports field. When he’s off his feet, Ben loves nothing more than to relax by watching Formula 1 and warns students not to get him started unless they’d like their ear talked off about the in’s and out’s of the sport!
