If you’re interested in picking up some coding skills yourself or are just curious about how programming works, this workshop gives you everything you need to get started.
- What exactly a computer does and how programming fits into the picture
- Essential programming concepts like variables, functions, data types, loops, and conditionals are and how they are used
- How programs are structured and executed
- Tools and apps that make programming easier
Anyone interested in getting familiar with the basics of programming and coding - no technical knowledge required.
