Tech Talent South is ready to answer the question: Why Learn to Code? More and more people nowadays are turning to code development either as a change in career, or as a supplement to their current one. This workshop will present the case why learning to code is a good idea for your future (no matter where you are in your career), what you should learn, and finally, where you should learn it. Along the way, you’ll learn to distinguish between learning to code, and “programatic thinking,” and some keys to success.
