Learn to Program: First Steps

, Co-founder and CTO at tinylabs

This class is an introduction to computer programming concepts for absolute beginners. You don't need any prior programming knowledge, we'll take those first steps together.

Everyone can learn to program. It's a tangible, real-world skill that can help you land a job, or solve a problem, or just have some fun. And, trust me, it will make you a better thinker.

We'll learn some very basic terminology, set up some free tools, and get you started writing your first program (in a language called JavaScript). Hopefully, you will come away more comfortable with what programming is, more understanding of what problems it can solve, and some good, old-fashioned excitement to keep learning.

I began as a coffee drinker.

But, for the last decade, I have submerged myself fully into the world of tea. Steeping, brewing, blending, resteeping, and drinking tea every day.

For the past two years, I've been working on blending green teas. Sourcing leaves from all over the world, trying to find uniques flavors and tastes. Even growing my own herbals on a roof deck in the East Village.

More than anything, I love this leaf. And if you give me a little time, I think I can make you love it too.
