Teach Yourself How to Program
Leader: Chad Haefele, UNC-Chapel Hill
Programming skills are in demand, but it often seems like an intimidating topic to learn. When we surveyed roundtable members, the number one thing we heard was that you wanted to learn to program. While we can't quite do that in one short session, we can do the next best thing: teach you how to teach yourself. Many programmers have little or no formal training, and picked it up as they went along instead. You can do that too! We'll talk about what it's like to learn to program, provide some guidance on what language to learn, and look at a number of free web-based teaching tools and resources. No prior experience is necessary.
Please RSVP by Wednesday, March 20 at 8am using this link: http://tinyurl.com/tntwebinar2
All webinars will be conducted using Blackboard Collaborate. A link will be sent out to all participants on the morning of March 20.
