Join CodeSLO and learn to code! This free, five-class series will teach you the basics of web development and no programming background whatsoever is required. We'll start at the beginning and show you how to set up a development environment on your laptop, how to write HTML and CSS, and even a bit of JavaScript programming. This class is taught by professional software engineers and sponsored by SoCreate, a local development company creating the next generation of screenwriting software.

Everyone has heard that demand for software engineers is sky-high and developers command head-of-household wages, but what is software engineering? How does it work? How does one get started?

This class will teach you all that and more. In addition the basics of code, you'll learn about the industry itself right from the mouths of local tech leaders. You'll also hear about opportunities available to SLO County residents who want to pursue software development as a career.

This isn't one meet, but a five-class series. You don't need to sign up for each class individually but please attend all sessions or as close as possible.

This class is completely free. There is no cost and no catch. No other commitment to any other course is required.

A fully-charged laptop is required for this class. Windows, Mac, and Linux devices are all supported. Chromebooks will work if they can install Visual Studio Code. Tablets with keyboards will not work for this course.

Special thanks to SoCreate for sponsoring this course. Our free events would not be possible without the support of our local tech community.
