Are you ready to dip your toes into the world of coding? Come spend a morning with us learning about the wonderfully versatile programming language: Python!
Python is currently one of the most popular programming languages that is used widely in the industry. It’s also a great place to start if you are a complete coding newbie! This workshop is an introduction to some general programming concepts and terminology such as types, operators, functions and control statements, as well as introductory syntax of Python 3.
This adult workshop is aimed at beginners in coding, so no prior knowledge is required! We do ask that you come with a willingness to learn and step outside your comfort zone. We’ll give you plenty of time to play with what you’re learning, and we encourage you to work together and ask questions!
By the end of the session you’ll be equipped with all the basics you need to take the next steps in the world of programming.
