GGTP #63: Coding Workshop
Sunday 14th August 2016, 2pm-4pm, SSR, Downing Street
Manchester Girl Geeks will present a 2 hour introduction to coding. With the help of www.codecademy.com, we will walk and talk you through the first steps to writing your own code in a programming language called Python. This short intro class is aimed at absolute beginners, who have little or no knowledge of programming, as well as people with experience of programming who would like to refresh their coding skills – for example, if you already program in another language but would like to learn a new one!
What to bring
You will need to bring your own laptop or tablet. The Codecademy website should work in most browsers, but we recommend that you create an account beforehand and try a couple of lessons to make sure that everything works OK for you.
There will be cake and biscuits available, but please feel free to bring your own creations.
The venue is wheelchair accessible. if you have any other access needs, please get in touch.
It is located about half a mile from Piccadilly Train station - if you need to get a bus, the 192 runs regularly from Picadilly Bus station.
