Intro to Programming Concepts (for True Beginners!)

BACKEND TRACK


Note: This will truly be an introductory class. If you’ve taken GDI’s Intro to Javascript, Ruby, Python or any equivalent classes and successfully completed the exercises, this workshop is not for you. If you’re a programmer by profession, this workshop is not for you. 

Have you ever taken a programming class and given up because the concepts were too hard to grasp or all the examples used math formulas and your walls went up? Have you then decided to try again with a different language– only to discover the same thing? Or have you stayed away from programming altogether, because you’re worried that’s what will happen? If you answered “Yes!” to even one of those questions, this class is for you!

In this workshop, we’ll explore some of the most basic and universal programming concepts. We’ll use everyday activities and real-life examples to demonstrate common structure such as If/Then/Else statements and different kinds of loops. We’ll also try to take the mystery out of variables and why computers are so picky.
