This course is all about learning to be creative in computing.  Technology has developed to remove from humans many of the tasks once done by them, with automation on offer instead.  Creativity is what automation struggles to replicate.  Workers in the near future will therefore be creative.  This course is where it starts.  The Adobe software suite is deployed, each learner being granted licences for its use.  This is the key to the kind of creativity that will unlock huge potential for each person.
