Growing demand for short courses on new and emerging digital technologies has lead to the Media Design School launching a series of weekend workshops.

Coding, game development, user experience, social media community management and digital design are some areas that are in high demand in New Zealand, according to the organisation.

The specialist workshops will be held at Media Design School's central Auckland campus, and aim to expose participants to an array of tools, tips, and transferable skills in the fields of new and emerging digital technologies.

These include basic proficiencies in Adobe Photoshop; Adobe After Effects; Unity 5; and a range of programming languages including HTML and CSS; JavaScript, Python; C++; and C#.

The first series of workshops include a number of featured workshops with industry practitioners who are leaders in their respective digital fields, the Media Design School says.

Tara Brannigan, community manager at Wipster and former community manager at PikPok, will be running a workshop entitled Building Your Community on Social Media, held on 19th September.

Auckland-based director of user experience design agency Lushai, Matt Gould, will be running an Introduction to User Experience Design course on 19-20th September.
