Event description

Description

Learn to code today!

Get started with programming in 6 weekly evening sessions, where you'll learn the basics of programming to launch you into a new career or hobby.

You'll learn how to code using Javascript and by the end of the six weeks will be able to create interactive websites and deploy them online!

You'll also be able to share your work using Git and Github, the exact same tools you would use to collaborate with developer colleagues.

Is this for you?

Do you want to learn to code? Have you tried a few tutorials but are looking for some more guidance and a clearer path to follow than watching YouTube videos?

It can be hard to learn alone, especially complex topics like programming. If you think that learning with peers and with an expert instructor available to guide your learning and answer your questions is the right way to go, this course is for you.

What if I know some things already?

Before the course begins, we'll ask you to give us an overview of what you know already, and we'll make sure that the tasks you're set will stretch and challenge you without being overwhelming. If you want to discuss your particular circumstances with us, reach out to us at workshops@decacoder.com.

What you'll learn

The curriculum will include

  • An introduction to programming in Javascript
  • Using Git and Github to collaborate on code
  • Using the command line to perform common tasks and manage your code
  • Understanding HTML and CSS
  • Building interactive websites, simulations and games
  • Using a database to store data from web pages
  • Deploying a completed project to the cloud

How does it work?

In a typical session we will start with a presentation or demonstration of a new topic, after which you'll get a chance to try things out for yourself with the help of the instructor. Before we finish the evening, we'll share the best resources available elsewhere about this topic and set project tasks for the next session.

In between sessions you'll be able to talk with each other and with the instructors online, including an online code clinic in Google Hangout once a week.

When and where?

Times: The course will run every Tuesday evening for 6 weeks from 6:00-8:30pm. The first session will be on the 24th January and the last session will be on the 28th of February.

We recommend you set some additional time aside to make the most of the course, but if that's not possible, we have made the sessions self-contained enough to stand alone.
