There is no pressure to understand something new straight away, everything is taught at a pace you are most comfortable with and in a relaxed environment.
No, seriously, it is. Learning how to solve a simple problem through basic programming is very rewarding and fun too.
Please get in touch if there is a demand for group coding sessions, I can tailor my sessions to suit your needs.
What makes programming fun? It is incredibly rewarding and satisfying to have the ability to create something out of nothing. Learning to code can be practised using a multitude of learning aids and tools.
Here are a few of the teaching aids that I use to get you started:
Squiffy is a tool for creating interactive fiction, multiple-choice games that focus on text and story. You can also publish your own creations to the web.
Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively and work collaboratively. You can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations.
The Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized single-board computer developed in the UK to promote the teaching of basic computer science in schools and developing countries.
The Hour of Code is a global movement, reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries through a one-hour introduction to computer science and computer programming.
I started my career in the corporate world working for IBM and then Motorola where I was involved in supporting and running mission critical applications. Eventually managing to break away from the blue chip world and discovered a fresh, vibrant and exciting community of like-minded individuals, delivering modern web-based solutions to clients across a very diverse range of markets.
I'm a geek at heart and very proud of it.
