Let’s Talk Coding: A Conversation About Technology at Darien Library
May 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Notice a buzz in the air about coding? Today, everybody seems to be taking coding classes, attending coding bootcamps, attending hackathons or participating in some kind of activity related to coding.
This interactive session will introduce you to key ideas about computers, the origins of coding, its history and the different languages used to write code. Join us for this interactive session where you will have fun exploring the world of coding.
People think that Coding is something that we do to make Computers do what we want. Actually, Coding is more about people-it is a structured form of thinking, an expression of our ideas that enables us to share and communicate ideas with other people.-Varghese John
Bring your questions about coding, participate actively in the discussions or just sit back and enjoy the conversation. No prior technical knowledge needed, there will be something in the conversation for novices and experts.
