Lovelace Coding Club

Lovelace Coding Club

This club aims to give the young women of Caterham’s community the opportunity to learn the basics of coding in an encouraging environment where experimentation and a willingness to try new things will allow you to create real programmes.

Using Visual Studio, you will learn one of the most important of the coding languages, become more resilient as a learner and problem-solver, learning skills which you will be able to utilise in a wide variety of ways.

You do not need to have any previous programming experience, this club will take you from an absolute beginner to producing games in a matter of weeks. Each session you will produce a working solution so you can see your skills in action.

Learning to program a computer can greatly help refine your problem-solving ability. Often, people have difficulty breaking down a problem into the steps needed to solve the issue at hand. Maybe you can see the solution, but don’t know how to get there.

However, this is exactly what we must learn to do in order to give computers instructions on how to solve our problems. Computer programmers are often experts at breaking down a problem because this is what they do on a daily basis in order to get machines to understand human workflows. So, any person who learns to do the same is going to gain skills to help towards problem-solving, a very valuable skill to have.

C# is one of the most popular programming languages, meaning there is a lot of support available to you if needed. It is flexible and has an immense amount of tool-sets available. It is also very readable, even to someone with no coding experience.
