Yes! We're giving FREE access to our brand new Photography in a Weekend mini-bbootcamp to 1000 people for one weekend over the 9th & 10th October. There is no cost to participate, the only paid applications used in the course are part of Adobe Creative Cloud and if you don't have a creative cloud membership you can access a 7-day free trial of Lightroom to follow along.

We have 1000 spots up for grabs. To request a spot, simply fill in the application and tell us why you're interested in learning to code - we'll let you know via email if you've been sucessful. While we wish we could give it to everyone, it's just not possible for such a hands-on program where we'll have mentors available on-demand and access to our custom-build learning hub with videos, practical activities and more. We definitely recommend you get in quick before the spots fill up.

We're keeping it open for free for one full weekend 29th & 30th October October. The total content is around 4 hours, with a few hours worth of activities so two days should be more than enough time to get through everything.
