Event description

Description

Join Turing School for a 2-day workshop where you'll learn the fundamentals of programming. If you've ever thought about becoming a software engineer, this is the no-risk event to try it out.

Schedule:

  • Saturday October 6th: 10:00am - 4:30pm

  • Sunday October 7th: 10:00am - 4:30pm

Exploring whether the technology field is for you? Here is your chance! Join the Turing School to learn, practice and decide if this career track is something you want to pursue through our Try Coding workshops. No previous experience or knowledge about programming is needed.

What You Will Learn at Try Coding

At Turing we offer two different programs of study and we like to run these workshops in the same way: splitting between back-end and front-end.

Think about loading the Amazon.com web page: the front-end engineers wrote the code to present products, built the interface for adding things to your cart, and make the page load quickly in your browser. The back-end engineers wrote the code to figure out which products to recommend, to charge your credit card, and to send the confirmation emails after a purchase.

Saturday is focused on Back-End. We'll use the Ruby programming language to build text-based programs. We'll manipulate some data and explore what it's like "behind the scenes." Successful back-end engineers work to build expertise in object-oriented programming, test-driven development, APIs, and other practices to build high-performance software.

Sunday we'll move to Front-End. We'll cover HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You'll learn how to create, style, and add interactivity to web pages. By the end of the day, you'll build a game from scratch that runs in the browser.

What is the Turing School?

Turing is a growing, thriving community helping each other become more than what they thought possible. Turing instructors blend a deep knowledge of education pedagogy and classroom experience with expertise in software development to make students job-ready after seven months of in-depth training. You will get a chance to learn more about the community and our programs at the workshop

Our Stats:

  1. Our graduates have a median starting salary of $75k and work in cities nationwide

  2. 84% of graduates are employed as full-time developers within 180 days of graduation.

So, what are you waiting for? Join us - you have nothing to lose and all to gain!

FAQ

Don't see the answer you need below? 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?

The attached garage to the building is $7 on weekends, and meters are free on Sundays.

3. Is the space accessible?

Yes, we have 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 Saturday?

Please arrive by 9:40 on Saturday morning to register and get settled.

7. Are kids welcome?

Generally people high-school age or older can keep up with the class and are very much invited. Unfortunately the venue does not have enough space for child care, so younger ones will need to spend their Saturday somewhere else.

*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.
