What Participants Had to Say
At Code/Art, I’ve learned to refine my current coding skills, but I’ve also learned some exciting NEW coding skills, especially in animation! Code/Art has definitely taught me a lot about coding.
By opening the doors to the previously male-dominated field of coding, Code/Art inspires our daughters to explore coding, showcase their talents, and pursue careers in this growing industry.
I’ve watched tentative students become skilled and confident as they progress through the workshops. I’ve watched complete beginners learn — in one day — to develop their own creative programs. Code/Art has made me a more experienced teacher and computer scientist.
