Who's this weekend workshop for? This is an introductory workshop for beginners who have little-to-no experience programming. If you're a non-technical founder, a creative entrepreneur, someone who works closely with developers, or you're just curious about code, this bootcamp will give you a foundation of practical know-how. Here are some common questions this workshop will answer for attendees: Can I learn code? Is this a career for me? What do developers do? How can I talk their language? I have a business idea – how hard is it to build it out? What is code? What's involved in programming?
What do I need to know or bring? At Bitmaker, we believe you can learn tech skills best by going hands-on. You don't need to have any prior knowledge of web development, but you will need to bring a laptop. If your computer can run an up-to-date version of the Google Chrome web browser, you should be all set.
