Description


Grand Circus presents: Intro to Coding for Queer Folks!


This special edition for our ITC is hosted at Affirmations, a safe space for all of our gay, trans, genderqueer, etc, friends and family and community! Taught by an instructor from the queer community, this FREE workshop is an easy and accessible entry into coding. Learn how to write you first line of code and start your path toward a new skill, hobby, or even career!


At Grand Circus, we believe anyone can become a developer. This FREE Intro to Coding Workshop is designed for those who are curious about coding, but who have very little or no coding experience.

By the year 2020, there will be over one million open computer-programming jobs. Here at Grand Circus, we are aiming to help fill those positions, one coder at a time.


This critical first step towards your new career will provide you with basic programming terminology - like syntax (trust us, it’s an important one!) and give you the opportunity to practice basic programming ideas.

While you won’t leave this workshop a developer, you will learn more about Grand Circus and the steps we have in place to get you there.

What do you need for this class?

  • A laptop with Google Chrome downloaded on it

  • A willingness to learn something new!


Featured Instructor, Christina Bergstorm

Christina has been in the tech industry for almost 20 years but has only been a Software Developer for three. Five years ago she went to a workshop that reignited her love for programming. In October 2016 she went to Grand Circus for their Front-End Developer Bootcamp. In January of 2017, she started her first position as a React Developer. Through her new career as a developer she has been able to change her family’s life through financial freedom and growing confidence. She enjoys serving in the community and is looking forward to a new volunteer position with Women Who Code. Christina is a fierce advocate for inclusion in the workforce and hopes to inspire future generations of underrepresented coders.
