Speaking at the lunch is Amul Batra, Director at Northcoders.
Amul connects businesses across the North with junior developers who
have graduated from Northcoders and are ready for their first role in tech. He
also regularly speaks at tech events on the subjects of diversity, inclusion
and the talent pipeline.
Before Northcoders, Amul spent
20 years in the music industry, running a record
label and managing a number of successful bands. He left music to set up a tech startup and ended up learning
to code himself on Northcoders' first ever cohort. There, he saw first hand how
valuable a skill coding was becoming whilst at the same time fell in love with
the values and ambition of Northcoders: diversity, community, quality and
helping to change lives through securing rewarding, fulfilling careers in tech.
He became an early investor in Northcoders and a key member
of the leadership team. Northcoders has now graduated over 350 new software
developers in the last 3 years and has helped guide 96% of them into their
first roles at businesses across the North.
