Have you ever wondered whether you'd enjoy computer programming?

The Tech Academy is offering a free one-day course on Introduction to Programming with Python. Python is a popular computer programming language.

This course is perfect for people with little or no experience in programming who are considering a career in software development. This way, you can find out ahead of time whether you enjoy the actual work of programming computers. A computer programmer does a lot more than just write code, but coding is the most important part of the job.

Please make sure to bring your laptop, as this will be a hands on learning process where you get to code.
