In today’s age of technology, coding is something that has become the new ‘cool’. From NBA star Chris Bosh to fashion model Karlie Kloss, even the celebs have taken interest! But for Pete Argent, everyday hero and primary school teacher, coding is his mantra – “If you want to make the world a better place but are not sure how – learn to code!”
Peter Argent, the Academic Director of Coder Factory Academy, lives to share his love of coding with the community and hopes to inspire more people to take up the challenge. He believes software is all about solving problems and making our lives better. "If you want to make the world a better place but not sure how - learn to code!". After a ten year career at IBM, Pete now runs a coding school. Through teaching after school coding classes for primary school kids at Redfern Community Centre and part time courses for aspiring tech startup entrepreneurs, he is able to educate and inspire people.
