We would like to invite you to the next instalment of our monthly webinar series, a Live Family Webinar ‘Practical Programming at Diamond!' on Wednesday 20th October at 16:00pm. Everyone is welcome to tune in as this webinar is specifically aimed at a general audience and no previous knowledge is required. As always you will get the opportunity to ask our experts any questions you might have. You can catch up with our previous webinars on our website here.

**Every day we come into contact with the results of programming and we often don’t even realise it. Whether it is heating our houses, washing our clothes or the mobile phones in our pockets, we engage with the results of programming before we have even left the house! Diamond Light Source is no different. Without programming Diamond would not be able to run any of our experiments and advance our knowledge of the world around us. This week we will be exploring the world of programming at Diamond. We will discover how important programming is and watch a live demo of programming in action. Then we will delve deeper into the role of our x-ray detectors, what they are used for and how they work, and how programming plays a vital role there as well. Tune in on Wednesday to appreciate exactly how essential Software Engineers are at Diamond!**

Amy and David from our Public Engagement team will be joined by William Nichols, a Senior Detector Software Engineer at Diamond. Together, David and William will open our eyes to the world of programming and the crucial role it plays at Diamond. William will answer any questions you have about Software Engineering, and as always Amy and David will be on hand to answer any questions about Diamond in general.

Tune in on Wednesday 20th October via Zoom (please note: questions can be submitted via the ‘Q & A’ function and attendees will be not be visible during the webinar).
