My name is David Batty, I am a Software Developer, Course Designer, Trainer and Digital Content Developer, many people know me for my Internet Marketing talks and for the various IT courses I deliver privately, through CodeCollege.co.uk, and for courses I deliver for the AQA.
I have been working full time in computers for 31 years…..and am still loving it. I have had my 30th anniversary of being a programmer on the 7th of November 2012.
For the past 30 years I have been learning the complicated stuff so my customers don’t have to.
I have been delivering computer training in schools and colleges to staff for CPD and also to students for 22 years.
On any day my activities may include some combination of the following:
Delivering Computer Training, Software Development, Internet Marketing, Creating Podcasts, Search Engine Optimisation, Working in Second Life, Staff Training, Video Editing or Website Development
…or other computer related activities.
I spend several hours a day learning new stuff, keeping up to date with digital news or finding new ways to use what I already know.
Contact me if you have staff you need training, data that needs converting, digital content that needs developing or anything else mentioned above. I work on Windows, the Web, Raspberry Pi and on Android devices.
I am currently busy delivering courses in GameMaker Games Design, Python, Scratch and GCSE Computer Science for ICT Teachers who want subject knowledge enhancement. Visit www.codecollege.co.uk for further details or to book a course delivered in your school.
You may also spot me if you are a teacher who books a Scratch or Gamemaker course with the AQA or who has attended an AS Level Computer Science course in London, as I deliver courses for the AQA in a variety of locations for teachers CPD.
I am a lead instructor at TechCamp and I am a technical (computer book) reviewer for Apress, in the small gaps I have left in the day I am writing my own computer books.
I am currently designing a new course for Project Spark, writing games for the Ouya console and working with the Raspberry Pi. as well as developing some ‘secret’ projects
