Beginning Coding

Saturday March 1, 2014

10am - 5pm

This event is now sold out

If you're an absolute beginner with no experience of programming whatsoever, this is your way in. You'll learn to think like a programmer, understand the essential programming principles, pick up just enough of the JavaScript language (which is used extensively on web sites) to get useful things done, and write and run some of your own programs. After completing the course you'll have more confidence to pursue any aspect of computing that interests you.

Who is the course for?

The course is aimed at absolute beginners who have no experience in programming, or who have only been working with languages such as HTML and CSS before. However, you should have confidence with basic computer functionality, such as typing, using the mouse, opening and saving files, etc. 

Your tutor: Chris Mills

Chris Mills is a Senior Tech Writer at Mozilla, where he writes docs and demos about open web apps, Firefox OS and related subjects. He loves tinkering around with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and other web technologies, and gives occasional tech talks at conferences and universities.

Chris used to work for Opera and W3C and enjoys playing heavy metal drums and drinking good beer. He lives near Manchester, UK, with his good lady and three beautiful children.

Manchester Digital Laboratory (MadLab) is a grassroots innovation organisation, based in Manchester UK. Our primary areas of focus are science and technology; arts and culture.


We support a diverse range of communities and activities – from monthly meetups and courses through to public experimentation with new & emerging technologies, and collaborating with others to deliver new, interesting and exciting projects.


Our courses are learning for doers. Every one of our courses, whether it's electronics or coding, writing or making, is powered by the same magic. Bring your curiosity and a little bit of imagination, and we'll amaze you with what you can do!


Our main base of operations is a three-storey, 3000 square foot Industrial Revolution-era former weavers’ cottage centrally located in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. We are less than ten minutes walk from Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria train stations, and just two minutes walk from the Arndale Shopping Centre.
