Welcome to Taster Tuesdays, where our very own Makers coaches will give you a taste of what it’s like to learn to code at Makers. Every two weeks, we’ll release a new workshop that focuses on one of the key technologies our students learn. These workshops are free to attend. If you’re a beginner then we recommended attending each one to build your coding skills.
Time: 1 – 2 pm
As the industry evolves, so do we, and we’ve made some exciting changes to our curriculum. That’s right, we’re now teaching Python in our bootcamp and we can’t wait to show you all the amazing things you can do with it. And what better way to introduce you to the power of Python than through our Taster Tuesday Workshops. Best of all, these workshops are completely free to attend! Whether you’re a seasoned coder or just starting out, our workshops are the perfect way to hone your skills and take your coding to the next level.
As our approach is tailored to people with no previous experience in coding. Our expert and super-friendly coaches will walk you through basic programming and computing concepts you’ll build on as you learn to code.
We’ll have a series of four workshops, each focused on a slightly different topic. You can attend the ones you feel will be most useful. You can attend in any order.
#1 Making Changes: Variables, statements, memory, ifs, loops. We’ll explore how execution flows through a program in order to produce correct results.
#2 Calculating Values: Operators, expressions, functions, and dictionaries. We’ll explore calculations and calling built-in functions to generate results.
#3 Transforming Data: Breaking down problems into summarising, mapping, and filtering. We’ll explore how you can break down programming problems into a few different types and apply reproducible solutions.
4# Bring your own problem. Come with your own problem for us to work on together as a group. We won’t cover everyone but everyone should bring something
This is an online event. After you register for the event you’ll receive an email with a link to join the Zoom meeting. During the session, the only thing you’ll need to write and run the program is a web browser such as Chrome or Firefox.
