Event description

Description

This is a full day, beginner level, crash course in back-end engineering; what we don't see in web applications: data, information and structures. You'll get a glimpse into what a back-end software developer does and learn how you can turn coding into a career.

This is a fast-paced, entry level course. You should be comfortable with navigating the basic operations of a computer; such as copying and pasting text, navigating the internet through a browser and typing.

Schedule:

  • Tuesday, December 3: 10:00am - 4:30pm

  • During lunch, there will be a Turing School Informational Q&A session with alumni, current students, and staff. Bring your questions!

Additional information on workshop location, parking and logistics are located at the bottom of this page. Lunch is included with your ticket purchase.


What You Will Learn?

Back-End Engineering

On this day, we'll cover how to navigate around your computer using the terminal, read and write files, and write your own command line applications. We'll cover how the internet works, variables, if statements, and looping using the Ruby programming language.


Why You, Why Now?

Because you have absolutely nothing to lose! If you've ever thought about it - try it. Don't waste another day, come explore with us.

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? Email Anna Kummerlowe at anna@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. Email Ramiro at ramiro@turing.io if you need to reserve a loaner.

2. Where do I park?

The attached garage to our building is $20 on weekdays. We recommend checking out the websites spothero.com and parkingpanda.com to reserve a spot at a cheaper rate. Metered parking is not a reliable option as you would need to move your car every 2 hours to avoid a ticket. We are also located in downtown Denver along several RTD bus routes and a 5 minute walk from Union Station.

3. Where is this workshop located?

This event will be held in the 3rd floor conference room in the Guaranty Bank building on 17th & Market. Once you arrive at the building, take the elevator up to the 3rd floor. There is only one conference room and we will be waiting to welcome you. Turing is located in the lower level of the Guaranty Bank building and we will offer an opportunity to tour our campus and space during this workshop.

4. Is the space accessible?

Yes, we have an elevator to our space and all classrooms are accessible.

5. 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 anna@turing.io for more information.

6. When should I arrive?

Please arrive by 9:50 to register and get settled.

7. Are kids welcome?

Generally individuals aged 17+ 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 day somewhere else.

8. I’ve already practiced some code as a hobby or through Codecademy - 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.

9. 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 an upcoming Try Coding.

10. What should I bring to the workshop?

Your computer, computer charger and a water bottle. Coffee and lunch are included with your ticket purchase!


*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.
