Intro to Programming

Do you want to learn HTML, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Ruby, or another programming language, but have no idea where to start? This class is for you! If you're not sure you have all the basic tricks up your sleeve necessary to start writing code, don't worry. We'll go over the nuts and bolts, like how to organize files, installing and working with a text editor, how to use the command line, and where different types of programming fit into the picture of a complete website. When you're done, you'll be primed to move on to learning about whatever kind of programming interests you personally or can help you in your career.

This is a hands-on class, so please bring your laptop or borrow one from a friend or colleague.

      I see that the RSVPs are closed, but is it too late to bring a friend?
