Learn to Code

Learning to code with this course is easy for all ages and abilities. It is written exactly for those who have no idea what coding is and have never (or done very little) coded before. It is a wonderful skill all on its own and well worth investing time and energy in even if you are not too sure what it is for. This course will give you an opportunity to find out what it is, what creative things you do with it if nothing more than for your own pleasure.

If you also very serious in wanting to learn how to code this is a great place for you to start. It is a JavaScript library called p5.js. It is open source which means it was created for non-profit. The software is free and there is nothing to download. So you can get started straight away. The only thing stopping you is you. All you need is a computer, laptop or tablet which can connect to the internet. I do the majority of my coding on my iPad but there are just a couple moments when you might need a mouse.
