Please sign up and tell us the name and age of your child(ren) attending.

If you sign up and later find out your child cannot attend, please let us know immediately, so that your RSVP can be changed and opened up for other students.

Please read the FAQs below as they may answer your questions. For additional questions, please contact our Volunteer Coordinators at [masked].

FAQs:

1. What ages are the classes open to?
We welcome all ages 8-12 years old. Please remember, a parent or a guardian is required to remain with the student for the entirety of the course for students under the age of 16.

2. Do students have to attend every class?
We expect students to attend for the entirety of the course unless there is an emergency. There are many students on our waitlist, so please do not sign up if you cannot stay the whole time.

3. What kind of computer will the students need?
Both Macs and PCs are welcome! Please bring a fully-charged laptop and a laptop charger to every class. Please make sure that the laptop is in a working shape; we don't want to spend the class trying to fix computers when we can be learning. Please make sure to have either Chrome or Firefox installed on the computer, these will be used throughout all 4 weeks.

4. What is the cost of the class?
FREE. Suncoast Developers Guild believes strongly that programming must be accessible at all ages, and kids classes are one way we inch toward making that belief a reality.

5. Do the students need to know how to touch-type?
Basic typing skills are helpful, but we will go at a slow enough pace for students that are not as familiar with typing.

6. What do students need to know before taking the class?
The course is for beginners. Imagination and love for computers are the only requirements for the class.

7. Are there homework/tests/grades in the class?
Our goal is for students to have a great time learning and playing with new tools and ideas. There are no tests, grades or homework. That said, we do expect students to be engaged in every class.

8. How do I register?
RSVP here! Make sure you register for any additional children after the first (your rsvp counts for one child, then 1, +2, etc for the number of additional children). You are RSVPing for all 4 Monday Nights for 4 weeks by RSVPing for this meetup.

After your RSVP, please complete the questionnaire and consent form.
