"At Fluxx we develop technical prototypes to test our clients’ ideas. It is not always feasible to work with development partners so we approached D-Lab to help our creative team develop their programming literacy. Ed is a brilliant educator; his training materials were well structured and he quickly developed rapport with our team - the participants progressed through the training at pace and had a lot of fun in the process. The one day workshop was challenging but our creatives were encouraged to work together as a team to solve the problems .We feel that our team now have a good understanding of what's possible and are more confident discussing projects with technologists. Ed has returned to Fluxx to support other teams and his work has always been exceptional."
