Introduction to Programming Concepts

Have you ever taken a programming class and given up because the concepts were too hard to grasp or all the examples used math formulas? Have you then decided to try again with a different language — only to discover the same thing? Or have you stayed away from programming altogether because you’re worried that’s what will happen? Or are you interested in learning to code, but have absolutely not experience with it? If you answered “YES!” to even one of those questions, this class is for you!

In this workshop, we’ll explore some of the most basic and universal programming concepts. We’ll use everyday activities and real-life examples to demonstate common structures such as conditional statements (if this, then that) and different kinds of loops (for each thing in this collection, do this…). We’ll also try to take the mystery out of variables and why computers are so darn picky.
