Learn to Code with Me!

Learn to Code with Me! (Workshop Series)

When: Meets every other Monday starting Jan 28, 2019 from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Where: MRC 160 (First Floor, Science Library) Here is a map!

Madelynn is the Digital Humanities and History Librarian at UCI Libraries. She wants to learn computer programming, and studies show that self-paced learning is most successful when doing it together as a group! Join this fun learning community and we’ll learn to code together!

Ideal for super beginners with no programming experience, we’ll watch online videos and follow tutorials together. As a small group, we can pause the video to ask questions, and follow along on our own computers. We’ll also leave time for group discussion.

We'll use this page to track our progress so if you miss a session or want to review a topic, you can follow along and see exactly where we are.

Progress Tracker

We’ll start with a fun but meaningful computer programming tutorial from the Khan Academy.  It’s free and focused on learning the fundamentals of programming with JavaScript to create drawings and animations, great for anyone who wants to learn to visualize data or make basic games.

To get started, create free a Khan Academy account.
