Want to learn programming fundamentals in a language that you can use to build websites, program robots, visualize data, run servers, and make art? In Introduction to Python you'll learn just that!

This class will be taught over two Saturdays from 9:30am - 2pm both days. This class is $100.00; the cost covers both days of courses.

Python powers some of the world's most popular websites and apps, like Google, reddit, Pinterest and Instagram.

During this interactive class, we'll explore the basic components of a programming language: data types, functions, conditional statements and loops. We will mix lecture and practice, and we'll work through lots of problems together. You'll leave the workshop with the knowledge, confidence and enthusiasm to continue coding.
