Event description
Join Turing School of Software & Design as we host a virtual Try Coding workshop for teachers who are thinking about a career change!

About this Event

Turing School of Software & Design is excited to offer this virtual Try Coding Workshop for teachers who are interested in programming. Please email chelsea@turing.io for the promotion code to take 100% off of the workshop cost.

This class will have one Turing instructor and teaching assistant in a virtual classroom who will guide you and other attendees through a structured curriculum where you will write code on your own and collaboratively with other students.

Please note, there is an additional pre-work requirement of at least 25-45 minutes to prepare for this virtual session. In the three days leading up to your class, you will have access to one of our Teaching Assistants to ask any questions about the assigned work. Zoom links will be sent out upon completion of the pre-work.

Workshop Overview

This is a fast-paced, beginner level course in Back-End engineering covering the “server-side”, what we don't see that makes web applications work. You'll get a taste of what a back-end software developer does and learn how you can turn an interest in learning to code into a new career.

You should be comfortable with navigating the basic operations of a computer; you will be expected to use the following skills: typing, copying and pasting text, navigating the internet through a browser, and conversing via a video chat.

Schedule:

  • Online class on Monday, December 28 from 10:00 AM -3:00 PM MST
  • During break, there will be a Turing School info Q&A session featuring alumni who were teachers prior to starting our program, current students, and staff. Have questions about learning how to code, Turing School, or the life of a software developer? Get them answered here!

Important Update: you will not be able to access our small group instruction and breakout rooms unless your Zoom is updated.

Additional information is located at the bottom of this page in the FAQ section.

What You Will Learn?

Back-End Engineering

Learn more about why the internet works, how to navigate a computer using the terminal and write code using the Ruby programming language. You’ll finish the class having built your own app that responds to user input!

Why You, Why Now?

Because you have nothing to lose! If you've ever wondered about software development as a career option - try it.

Follow-Ups

​If you attend the workshop and decide to apply to Turing School, you'll receive $500 off the cost of your tuition if you're accepted.

FAQ

Don't see the answer you need below? Questions? Contact Chelsea at chelsea@turing.io

1. How will I connect to the virtual session?

You will need a computer for this class that can connect to the internet and operate Zoom. When we send a pre-work reminder for the class (3 days before) we will send specific information on how to connect to the Zoom classroom we will be using. We recommend that you download Zoom now to ensure it is compatible with your computer.

2. When will I receive the pre-work for class? What if I have questions about pre-work?

Prework for this class can be found here. Your instructor will also send a reminder about pre-work for the online class 3 days before class begins. At that time, they will also send the contact information of our Teaching Assistants (TA's). TA's will be available to answer any and all questions about pre-work and support you before class begins. Please only complete the prework for the Back-End day.

3. I registered for the class within 3 days before it's start date- will I have enough time to prep and complete the pre-work before class?

Depending on your schedule- yes! We recommend reserving 25-45 minutes to complete the pre-work. Technically, you could register day of at 8 AM., complete the pre-work from 8 AM - 9 AM and join us at 9:45 a.m. when class starts. However, this option wouldn't give you access to our Teaching Assistants if you had questions, so we suggest registering at least 1-2 days before the start date.

4. What equipment should I have for this online class?

A computer that can connect to the internet via a web browser. We recommend using headphones to minimize distractions and ensure you can access the information. It will also be beneficial to find a quiet working space where you will be able to focus during the duration of the course.

5. Are kids welcome?

This is a course designed for professional level adults and is not designed for kids. We ask that individuals under age 18 do not register to attend.

6. I’ve already practiced some code as a hobby or through CodeAcademy - will I still benefit from this course?

This course is designed for people who are brand new to code and have never tried it before. That doesn’t mean that those with some experience aren’t welcome or will not benefit from it, but some parts may be a review. If you are interested in a more advanced, Try Coding 2.0 workshop, please complete this interest form: http://bit.ly/2Tuhw13 and will keep you updated once it is scheduled.

7. What is the refund policy?

If for any reason you can’t make it to the event, tickets are refundable up to 24 hours before. If the event has passed then we are happy to transfer your ticket to any upcoming Try Coding.

8. I can't attend this workshop but I am still interested in trying out coding. Can I use my promotion code to register for another workshop date?

Yes! Please register for any workshop with the promotion code you have received and email chelsea@turing.io with any questions.

*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. During the workshop, participants are asked to follow instructor directions and conduct themselves respectfully in all interactions. If you are a repeated disturbance, our instructors reserve the right to remove you from the class.
