Learning to Code

People often asked me ‘what is coding?’. I struggled to explain exactly what it is and why it is used for. so I created this curriculum to show them rather than just explain. I hope you have the same inquisitive mind that just wants to know ‘what it is’ and if you have that burning question, this is a great place to start.

This is designed as a coding course that will introduce you to the basic for those who have never coded before. You cannot fail, you can only try. You will be coding before you even have a chance to say ‘I can’t do this’. This is a have a go course. It is free and plans to stay that way. The aim is to give you the skills to create wonderful works of digital art and/or simple games for people to enjoy. The beauty of this is that you can link it into a website for others to see, interact and play.
