Join the Learn to Code group at Agnes Scott! Our meetings will be located in the Center for Digital and Visual Literacy (CDVL), aka the d-center, in Dana Fine Arts, room 210. Meetings will occur every Thursday from 5 PM to 7 PM during the school year, beginning September 8th, 2016.
The Learn to Code meetings themselves will not be formal classes, or even lessons taught about programming. Instead, those who attend will typically choose an online curriculum and follow it, using the other participants as resources when they need help. They’re also welcome to bring problems from their programming class or ideas for individual projects they’d like to work on in their spare time. Matt Ruby*, who works in the ITS department at Agnes Scott, has committed to be at every meeting to provide organization, encouragement, and assistance.
Everyone from the Agnes Scott community, including students, faculty, and staff, is welcome to participate. We intend for this to be a collaborative and judgement-free space for people to learn comfortably and at their own pace.
The Learn to Code group would not be possible without support from the Agnes Scott technology club, PASCAL, and the d-center.
The “d-center” is a resource for staff, students and faculty to cultivate digital literacy. The center employs staff and student tutors who help facilitate the exploration of problem solving options that advance digital and visual skills for academic projects and ideas.
