With a passion for technology, teaching and the environment, Rob started his professional life as a maths teacher after graduating from Cambridge University.
After building websites for about seven years and noticing a lot of people struggling to learn how to code, he wanted others to have the same freedoms that he found web development gave him.
It was with this that he started teaching web development with one thing in mind:
Learning to code doesn’t have to be frustrating, overwhelming, or tiresome.
Andy has spent the last three years in the hosting industry, working as a third line support technician for Heart Internet before joining Rob in February 2015 to get behind Codestars and Eco Web Hosting.
A self-professed geek, Andy took a slightly different approach when applying to university and studied journalism to follow his passion of discovering and communicating the fascinating, helpful and informative as a career.
Through Codestars, he is reconciled with his love of technology through a passion to make it human-friendly and interesting for everyone.
Having trained as a Software Engineer, Tak is passionate about the Codestars learning products as he not only understands the importance of coding in the modern age but strives to help make them available to organisations.
Since joining Codestars, Tak has been working with educational establishments and training organisations to deliver Codestars’ e-learning content.
Patricia — Business Development Manager
Patricia has more than 20 years of front-line experience in Business Development in Global Networking, Unified Comms, Web Hosting, Optimisation, Cloud and now in Coding.
She is a firm believer in the potential for education to enrich not only the lives of those just starting out, or in other lines of work, but also to help the rehabilitation of those who fallen out of society to contribute meaningful and useful skills back into the community.
After joining Codestars in July, she has reached out to schools, colleges, universities and businesses and the probation/rehabilitation services to bring them skills that benefit both students of the courses and those they later work with.
During this time he has helped to create comprehensive training strategies for new starters as well as developing coding skills of his own that have been put to use on a personal level creating sites for a number of local projects.
These skills, teamed with his technical support background, have made Codestars a dream job.
Tam has over 15 years’ experience in communications and runs Gather Creative, a Cambridge copywriting and PR agency.
She writes the course descriptions and materials for Codestars, making them crystal-clear, compelling and even easier for students and teachers to digest.
Tam believes brevity is underutilised in business and she’s on a mission to eradicate jargon: There’s no better road to clarity and impact.
