WORKSHOP Coding for curious: intro to programming with ActionScript 3

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

My workshop is officially on tour!

It was really a great pleasure for me to last month to launch this workshop and after its success on the first edition (sold out), I decided I’ll be running this workshop again in a few different cities and countries.

It was really great to introduce coding to 50 curious minds without previous experience, and find out that in one day, people with all kinds of completely unrelated jobs are really interested and can be really good at programming. Some of them I was actually convinced they used some programming language before, to find out this was their first contact with coding.

My approach is relaxed, fun (and effective): attendees will build a simple game from scratch in this one day intensive workshop, and will learn several advanced concepts and useful tricks along the way. No previous coding (or even Flash) knowledge needed at all. No scary technical jargon will be used to make things sound complex, because they are not. Actually this will run without computers during the first hour, using attendees on stage to explain in a practical way how a program works and “enact” concepts like variables, objects, functions, loops and conditions. Then, it’s hands-on and the pace will progressively get more and more interesting. The feedback from the first edition really pushed me into starting this tour.
