About the Instructor
Mike is well-connected, thoughtful, fun to work with, and understands the landscape of the tech and startup communities in an extremely practical way. It would be a privilege to work with Mike on anything, anywhere, anytime.Ali Llewellyn
Mike has a very unique skill of being able to encourage and motivate people while holding them accountable to do the best they possibly can. My team wouldn’t of accomplished any where near what we did without Mike.Ricky Robinett
Mike brings a contagious joy and enthusiasm to anything he does. In the time we worked together on ConceptX, he was always ready with numerous ideas, insightful feedback, a curious mind, and an outstanding ability to collaborate. He is a kind and visionary leader with a deep understanding of technology, product, and people. I’ve rarely met such a talented generalist who also elevates those around him.Debra Lin
I learned a lot about new product development, the state and trajectory of several new markets, and how to qualify and prioritize a wide variety of ideas. Mike’s extensive startup experience really showed, and helped us come up with some of the best ideas of the summer.David Amato

How long have you wanted to learn how to read and write your own code? Have you been frustrated by online classes, been taken in by the promise of easy learning on your own time, and came away from the lessons with little understanding and more confusion than you started with?
The Coding For Beginners workshop can teach anyone with determination and an open mind all the basics needed to write code. This workshop is for everyone, whether you’re completely unfamiliar with coding or already know a programming language or two. Our approach is to help you understand computing languages from first principles, in a holistic way that will fill in gaps in knowledge for self-taught programmers and get beginners off on the right foot.
- How a modern computer works, from hardware to software
- Running commands in your computer’s operating system
- Using a package manager to install programming tools (Homebrew)
- Programming language basics and using an interpreter
- Creating programs using step-by-step outlines
- Installing third party software libraries
- A brief introduction to advanced programming concepts
Come to our hands-on, intensive, one day workshop and learn in a small group setting where you will get personal attention from an instructor who will answer any and every question you have about computers and programming, and will help you every step of the way. You will leave this workshop with all the technical tools and knowledge you need to read and write your own software.
Please note that this workshop is not about “building web sites” or using HTML or other markup languages or any other form of “front end design”; we will primarily use the Python programming language. Python is best described as a “back end” technology and the workshop is all about how computers work “under the hood” with programming.
What to Bring
You must bring a laptop. MacBooks with Mac OS X (10.7 or greater, the version called “Lion”) preferred because they already come pre-installed with all the tools you need to get started programming immediately. Step by step instructions will be provided prior to start of the workshop to help you get your laptop ready for programming if you don’t have a Mac. Attendees will not be able to follow along with learning Unix commands if they’re working on a Windows laptop.[Light and healthy refreshments will be served during both workshop sessions. We will try to be sensitive to any dietary restrictions, allergies, or other requirements.]
Don't get left behind! Learn to code in a small group.
