Before GUI’s, flash and C++, there was a generation of kids who got a box that plugged into a TV that did nothing. It was up to them to write something to make it do something and that culture inspired what we have now with computers.

We are taking it back to basics, no need to download an operating system, no need to FTP from a desktop PC to a microchip, simply a blinking cursor ready for instruction. We will be running a meet and greet, drop in session. Simply show up, chat and have a go on a Spectrum to a Commodore or a Raspberry Pi running FUZE basic.

Our aim is to introduce the principals of coding and inspire interest into programming. Once you make sense of the basics, suddenly programming isn’t as daunting as it first appears. We want to change your perception by giving you the opportunity to experience the coding culture of the 80‘s! 

We are located within Keighley College, next door to the train station. Ask for the Fab Lab or the Star Centre.
