Description

Anyone CAN BE A DEVELOPER

Looking to transition to a career in tech or curious about tech careers?

Let us help you on your journey!

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. This workshop has been curated with the Pride Center to create a space for our LGBTQ+ community to explore careers in tech.

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 workshop 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.

Join us, the Grand Circus community, for an introduction workshop to coding and leave with the building blocks to begin your journey in tech!


What do you need for this class?

  • A laptop with Google Chrome downloaded on it (we have loaners as well if you need one)

  • A willingness to learn something new

Who Should Attend?

  • Everyone in the LGBTQ+ community are welcome!

Bus fare reimbursement is available upon request at registration.

Can’t attend? No worries! Find a time that works for you here.


This workshop is provided in collaboration with the City of Grand Rapids SmartZone and Grand Rapids Pride Center


Grand Rapids Pride Center aims to be the center of a vibrant and inclusive community that supports all LGBTQ individuals. It’s vision is to support the LGBTQ+ community through supportive services and awareness.
