Come build your software coding future!

No matter what your background is, you can learn to code! In this introduction to software coding, you will be using Microsoft Small Basic to cover text-based coding that’s easy and fun to learn. This class acts as a starting point, before the Basic Programming Essentials course, to offer a paced, easy introduction to coding. Take the class if you want to understand computer science better and how to work with developers; pursue business-related or support jobs in the technology industry; explore a potential career in development in the easiest way possible; prepare for more complicated languages (Java, Python, C#) with a gentle learning slope; or simply learn an important skill for the future.

This course welcomes students under the age of 18 when accompanied by a parent or guardian.
