PRINCIPLES OF CODE 1 @ SG CODE CAMPUS

This first course of our Principles of Code introduces our Code Campers to the vocabulary and grammar of coding in the Pythonlanguage - the fundamental concepts that they must master before moving on to building computer programs that solve practical problems or create real-world apps. With a fully featured language like Python, what Code Campers can do is limited only by their imagination as mobile, web development, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, robotics, financial engineering and bioinformatics are well within reach of the savvy Python programmer. 

To help familiarise Code Campers with the basics of programming in Pythonic context, we have chosen to to elucidate these concepts through Minecraft – one of the most iconic, beloved and dare we say, educational (so declares the New York Times) video games of our time.

Dates: 20 Jun 2016 - 08 Jul 2016
Times: 10.00am - 12.30pm (2 dates: 20 June - 1 July; and 27 June - 8 July); 2:30 - 5.00pm (20 - 24 June)
