Coding Camp for Marketers

Part of the ModularMaster in Strategic Digital Marketing programme

Knowing code is fast becoming an asset for any job and role. Digital marketers will find coding an invaluable skill to add to their portfolio of competencies. Being code-literate in the age of disruption can have several benefits, besides acquiring a highly in-demand technical skillset, marketers can deepen their understanding in what goes on behind websites and campaigns; optimising campaigns for results. With the challenge of leaner marketing teams or geographically-distributed teams, marketers have to be resourceful and having coding in the bag of skills, marketers can rely on themselves when the situation calls.

Coding teaches us to structure and define problems better, improve problem solving skills and become more resourceful. Combined with analytics, marketers are able to match data with coding, providing marketers with insights and the ability to optimise campaigns.
