Code 102: Intro to Software Development

Not sure where or how to start learning software development? Just want a little help getting ready for Code 201? Or maybe you’re discouraged by the confusing interfaces, unclear error messages, and unexplained concepts of online coding tutorials. 

If you’re ready to get unstuck and move beyond the concepts covered in Code 101, come work with experienced developers who can help guide you through your learning. Join us for Code 102! You’ll blast through the prework for Code 201 while getting a tour of the tools and techniques of modern developers.

Oct 16 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm The Tech Academy Seattle 325 S 3rd St, Renton, WA 98057 View A Map to This Event View This Event

We run a code school. We hear from a lot of people we talk to that they're not sure whether they're interested in a job in the tech field, because they don't know enough about it. Sometimes, they've even been told that "programming is hard to learn."At The Tech Academy, we work hard to break down the barriers between people and technology. We think that, with the right approach, anyone can learn to code - and whether you end up working in technology or not, the principles behind coding are useful in a lot of areas.The Tech Academy is offering a free course providing an introduction to Python. Python is a popular programming language for general-purpose programming. It is particularly easy to learn for those new to coding.This course is perfect for people with little to no experience in programming who are curious about a career in software development.In this practical, hands-on class, you'll learn the basics of this popular computer language - and along the way, you should find out for yourself whether technology and coding are something worth looking into a bit more deeply.Please Note:---Make sure to bring your laptop, as this will be a hands on learning process where you get to actually write your own code!---An RSVP is needed to guarantee a seat in the class, though we may have a few open seats for last minute attendees.

--You must be at least 18 years of age to attend this class.
