About this workshop

You’ve heard that a successful software engineering career can open up some pretty exciting opportunities - but if you don’t know the first thing about programming, you might be wondering where to start. Good news: you’re here.

This free, 2-hour workshop is the perfect starting point, covering the fundamentals of software engineering. From understanding how the internet works, to how data is accessed and stored, to which programming languages are most in-demand today, and more.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll be ready for next week’s session where you’ll learn about the building-block languages of the web, and get hands-on practice to Build a Simple Website with HTML & CSS. We’ll see you there


You’ll leave this workshop knowing:

  • The basics of databases, servers, and data centers and how they’re used
  • Insight into today’s most in-demand programming languages
  • Confidence to continue programming
