Darien Library is offering a five-week coding course for adults, meeting on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., starting this coming Wednesday, Sept. 4.
Registration is now open. As of Wednesday morning, there were 10 spaces left in the course, half of the total available. The class continues through Wednesday, Oct.2.
Here’s the library’s description of the course:
Calling all moms, entrepreneurs, college students, or anyone interested in learning the basics of computer coding!
We will explore programming in Python. Think of it as like a new language: in addition to learning syntax, and writing scripts, we will work on developing computational thinking-breaking down big problems into simple individual tasks.
The best news? No experience is necessary! Students are required to bring a laptop for use during this class.
