601 Coding Introduction

There are a lot of fun things we can do by coding, and I hope to explore a lot of them this year. Computer coding is one of the fastest-growing, most essential skills in the world. Having some knowledge and understanding of how coding works will help you get a better job in the future and will teach you an important skill.

We’ll start off pretty simple and see where we can go from there. In December every year, I like to participate in something called The Hour of Code. We’ll talk more about it then, but you can get a start now. This is also something you can work on when you are waiting for help or a new assignment or just for fun.
