Event Details

Never programmed before, but want to give it a shot? Want to release the programming ninja inside you, but don't know where to start? Want to get the basics of programming down, so you can talk shop with more experienced developers? Just want to give programming a try, and see if you like it? 

Join master trainer Mark Lassoff for this four session course which will introduce you to the basics of developing software. Mark will introduce you to concepts that are universal to most programming languages using Python-- a free language that you can run on any platform. 

Mark specializes in working with beginners, and making complex technical matters understandable for just about anybody. 

After each session you'll complete a lab assignment and submit to Mark and his team at LearnToProgram for grading and feedback. If you need assistance at any point during the class the instructional team remains available via email, twitter, or Skype. 

Upon completion we'll send you a certificate recognizing your achievement and, if you'd like, help you design a custom learning path through which you can advance your skills further.
