Anything else I should know?
Nope, nada, nothing and zilch!
This course is made for anyone who wants to learn something new, and is geared for those who have zero experience coding.
An understanding of how computers generally work (installing software as well as opening and saving files) would be highly beneficial, but we’ll go through all that on the day anyway.
Who should do this workshop?
Business owners, creatives, hobbyists, bloggers, teachers, parents… anyone who wants to learn to code and start their learning in the best way possible.
What should I bring?
Two of the most important things we need from our students is a positive attitude and a thirst for knowledge. We can’t give these to you on the day – you must bring them with you.
As far as technical things: Bring a laptop (Mac, PC or Linux – it doesn’t matter!)
Make sure you have the following software installed:
Please also make sure you have admin rights on your computer – this means we can install things on the day and you’ll be able to save files to your hard drive.
If you’re using a computer from your employer, make sure you’ve got admin rights before you come along.
