What an incredible day! The First Minister Alex Salmond declared CodeBase officially open. During his visit the First Minister was introduced to Code First Girls who were running a taster session for their Code & Create Weekend course at the end of March, after which he met with members of KotikanFloateoSurgicalConfbuzzPeekabu and Rightscale.

The First Minister announced the new digital skills action plan, featuring a £6.6m boost to the digital sector.

We're really excited about the new plan, it's sure to make a very real difference to the tech sector.
