Saturday, September 10th 2016 @ Coder Factory Academy in Ultimo
By Torie Saltzman.
We were asked to bring only these three things:
- A desire to learn
- A good mood
When we arrived at our designated room, we were given some short presentations and explanations on programming and coding exercises. We were then asked to code alone with the directions given and with the help of the mentors. The night before we had installed Node.js and a Text Editor and we were set to go!
There were three different parts to our tasks, each more challenging. We learned how to create lists, manipulate them, use functions, commands, and loops, etc. The mentors were amazing and helped us to better understand (in people terms) what we were doing.
In between the workshops, we had a very tasty lunch generously provided by TabCorp and to keep our brains working extra hard, we were also provided a delicious array of teas and sweets.
Overall, we had a very successful learning experience and all three of us are keen to continue learning these skills. Coming away from the sessions, we developed a greater sense of what it takes to be a great coder, and how we can better help the community of people we work with each day find the right match.
On a personal note, we all were definitely bitten by the coding bug, and can’t wait to expand our knowledge and hack away more – I don’t know about Stas or Luda, but I walked out of there feeling like Mr(s) Robot.
