How Can Digital Tech Make Fashion More Sustainable? The Institute Of Coding Launches Virtual Coding Club

The Institute of Coding (IoC)has launched a three-part content series touching on some of the issues faced across society and how tech can provide a solution to solve some of these issues.

The Institute of Coding has partnered with innovative web developer Rifke Sadleir to host a new coding club on 17th April – 1st May. The club will show the process behind creating and launching personalised face filters on Instagram and how to code for the web. 

With many people now working and learning from home, the IoCoding Club, along with the IoC’s 60+ online courses, provides an easy-to-access route for people to develop and learn new digital skills. The club will include video tutorials and how-tos, drawing on Sadleir’s recent experience working for brands such as Converse. The club’s tutorials will be accessible for anyone with a passion for coding and are suitable for all levels.

One episode includes, “How Can Digital Tech Make Fashion More Sustainable?” and features innovative collaborators (Karinna NobbsSadie Clayton and Damara Ingles) who each share their experiences of tackling the issue of the lack of sustainability in the fashion industry and how tech can be a solution.

As part of their wider CTRL Your Future campaign, the IoC has also launched 404 Not Found – a new IGTV series that explores three key issues within the digital industry. The three-part content series features innovative collaborators from the AI, digital fashion and gaming fields, who each share their experiences of working to reboot the digital sector.

Contributors include Stacey Rebecca, a Twitch streamer who also refers to herself as a “fibro warrior” and champions accessibility for all in the gaming industry; Charlene Prempeh, founder of A Vibe Called Tech which explores the intersection of technology, race and creative expression; and Karinna Nobbs, who is behind A Hot Second, the world’s first digital fashion, circular economy concept, which trades physical goods for virtual experiences.
