Event description



Tuesday January 29th: 6-9 pm

Wednesday January 30th: 6-9 pm

Are you interested in learning how to code, but not sure if it's right for you?

Try Coding Evenings is a two-evening program from the Turing School that will expose you to the basics of the Back-End Engineering aspect of computer programming.


In two evenings, you'll learn the basics of Ruby—a popular programming language for building web applications and writing back-end code.

We'll cover how to navigate around your computer using the terminal, read and write files, and write your own command line applications. By the end of the second evening, you'll have built your very own program to post tweets and read timelines from Twitter.

Throughout the course, you'll also learn about our community and culture, mission and values.

Light dinner will be served each evening.


You'll have an opportunity to show off work that you're proud of. You'll also receive helpful feedback on how to improve your code from our instructors.

After Event

You will receive $500 off the cost of your tuition if you're accepted.

Questions? Contact Erin Williams at erin@turing.io


1. Do I need to bring a computer?

You will need a computer for this class. It does not matter what the operating system is as long as you are able to access the internet through a browser. However, if you do not have one, a limited number of loaner computers are available for the class. Contact ramiro@turing.io if you need to reserve a loaner.

2. Where do I park?

Paid parking is available in the area. Lots run between $8 and $15 per day, and are often less costly in the evenings.

3. Is the space accessible?

Yes. There is an elevator to our space and all classrooms are accessible.

4. I want to attend but I can't afford it. Are there any scholarships available?

We are offering scholarships on a limited basis for students with financial need. Please contact erin@turing.io for more information.

5. When should I arrive for the Try Turing Evenings?

Please arrive by 5:45 on Tuesday to register.

6. What if I'm interested in Front-End Engineering?

We have other weekend courses that cover Front-End Engineering. You can check our upcoming courses here.

*Cancellation of events are dependent on a variety of factors including registrations, inclement weather and pressing needs that come up. If we do cancel your Try Coding workshop, you will be notified more than 24 hours in advance, credited back your registration payment and sent the schedule of other events.
