  • Are you interested learning in the basics of how computers operate and how code works?  Have you ever taken a programming class and given up because the concepts were too hard to grasp? Or have you stayed away from programming all together, because you’re worried that’s what will happen? If you answered “Yes!” to any of those questions, then this class is for you! 

    In this workshop, we’ll explore some of the most basic and universal programming concepts. We’ll use everyday activities and real-life examples from languages like Javascript, Ruby, and Python to demonstrate common structures such as If/Then/Else statements and different kinds of loops. We’ll also try to take the mystery out of variables, and we'll talk about why computers are so picky.

    Note: This will truly be an introductory class. If you’re a programmer by profession or have experience with programming languages, this class is not for you. 

    Tech Requirements:

    • Your laptop
