Python Programming Course

Python Introductory Course

First Coding is running another Python introductory course for 11 – 14 year olds who are confident around computers and would like to start developing their coding skills through this programming language.

Over the four weekly sessions, students will learn the important concepts of programming whilst working towards their own text-based adventure games. We will also cover how to host and distribute the games you make.

The course starts on Saturday 15th February between 2.30pm and 3.30pm and will run for four weeks. The cost is £80 per student and sessions are held at the First Coding offices here in Salisbury: http://www.firstcoding.co.uk/contact/

TEDx Talks in Salisbury

I am very pleased to be given the opportunity to talk at next month’s TEDx event here in Salisbury. I will be talking about ways to use code creatively whilst showcasing First Coding and a few of its projects. I have always wanted to say “Thank you for coming to my TED talk” and now I can!
