Learn to think programmatically (the quintessence of coding) to thrive in the digital age. Coding Fundamentals is our 6-week part-time introduction course on essential coding concepts. There are 12 sessions to discover, covering six technical concepts: variables, functions, conditionals, loops, arrays and hash tables, and version control.
We’ll build apps, learn coding fundamentals, and understand software engineering — all the building blocks that you’ll need to enter the tech space.
Coding Fundamentals employs the flipped classroom model where you complete facilitated self-learning before class and engage in pair exercises during class. Fundamentals aims to introduce the elements of constructing a program and thinking about how it should work in a short (6 weeks, 12 lessons) amount of time.

Bryan's the hermit who will always choose to stay home but prioritizes people despite being uncomfortable in The Great Outdoors. He loves deconstsructing concepts and buildings things back up - coding perfectly fits this impulse.
