Description

Introduction

Are you interested in learning how to code, but not sure if it's right for you?

Try Coding Saturday is a one-day program from the Turing School that will expose you to the basics of the Front-End Engineering aspect of computer programming.

Curriculum

​In one day, you'll learn the basics of front-end engineering. 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.

Throughout the day, you'll also learn about our community and culture, mission and values.

Food and drinks will be served.

Takeaways

You'll have an opportunity to show off work that you're proud of. You'll also receive helpful feedback on how to improve your code from our instructors.

We'll even have a lunch-time Q&A with current Turing School students and instructors so you can ask any questions about software development, our program, and how to start your technical career.

After Event

​If you complete the course and decide to apply to Turing School, you'll be welcome to skip the application and move immediately to the interview component of the admissions process.

You'll also receive $500 off the cost of your tuition if you're accepted.
