23/05/19Self-directed Workshop & Learning Python Together Online
Use the opportunity of a quiet space & a supportive atmosphere to work on individual projects of your choice or follow online coding courses from Codecademy.
Learning To Program Together Online: working alongside each other on free online courses from Codecademy to learn programming skills & the Python programming language, sharing our frustrations & (hopefully) successes.
On the Codecademy website it says:
Why Learn Python?
Python is a general-purpose, versatile & popular programming language. It’s great as a first language because it is concise & easy to read, & it is also a good language to have in any programmer’s stack as it can be used for everything from web development to software development & scientific applications.
Take-Away Skills:
This course is a great introduction to both fundamental programming concepts & the Python programming language. By the end, you’ll be comfortable programming in Python & taking your skills off the Codecademy platform onto your own computer.”

Since this is self-directed, with members working at their own pace, please feel free to join us at any point. There are laptops available to use during the session if needed & free wifi.
If you are a confident coder & would like to support others in learning to program, particularly with Python, please contact us; your help would be very much appreciated!
NB: This is not a taught course.
