Welcome to the home of a Digital Yorkshire!
Find out about our services that work to support residents in York to make York a digitally inclusive city to live in.
Get your code in space with Mission Zero
Mission Zero is back at York CoderDojo, giving young people the chance to have their code run in space (we're serious)! Write a simple program to take a reading from the colour and luminosity sensor on an Astro Pi computer on board the International Space Station, and use it to set the background colour in a personalised image for the astronauts to see as they go about their daily tasks.
Gwiddle is now part of the Keeping Digital Foundation, aiming to improve access to digital technology and also support young people in Computer Science education. To allow more students to get involved and try coding, we're providing free website hosting so students can test code and build exciting projects.
We've partnered with York's Virgin Money to bring the Databank to the high street
We've partnered with our friends at Virgin Money to make getting your free Databank SIM card even easier. If you can't make a Digital Cafe, you can now pop into the York City Centre (Coney Street) branch of Virgin Money and ask to speak to a staff member about the Databank. The Databank scheme is discreet and confidential, and you don't have to be a Virgin Money customer.
You can keep up-to-date with our wide range of services on their websites.
