      Grand Circus x Affirmations: FREE Intro to Coding Workshop

      Grand Circus and Affirmations present a FREE Introduction to Coding Workshop!  This special edition for our Introduction to Coding is hosted at Affirmations, a safe space for our gay, trans, genderqueer, etc, friends and family and community!  Queer-taught and queer-inclusive, this FREE workshop is designed for those who are curious about coding, but who have very little or no coding experience. Learn how to write your first line of code and start your path toward a new skill or career!  At Grand Circus, we believe anyone can become a developer and these workshops are a critical step to improving diverse perspectives and background in tech. Technology should reflect the diversity of our communities.   If you're interested in exploring a tech career, this workshop is your perfect first step. Our highly qualified instructor will teach you the basics of coding. You'll also complete the fizz buzz programming test which is used globally to see if someone can program. You'll leave the workshop with a stronger understanding of coding fundamentals, confidence that you coded and insight into whether a career in tech could be right for you.  Did you know? ✓ There is 24% job opportunity growth for Software Development by 2026, outpacing other industries. ✓ Michigan is ranked 3rd for tech industry growth in 2018, by Cyberstates. ✓ Software Developer is rated the #1 "Best Job" according to U.S. News. ✓ 89.1% of Grand Circus bootcamp graduates land a career in tech. Meet your instructor:  Christina Bergstrom Christina has been in the tech industry for almost 20 years but has only been a Software Developer for three.  Five years ago she went to a workshop that reignited her love for programming. In October 2016 she went to Grand Circus for their Front-End Developer Bootcamp.  In January of 2017, she started her first position as a React Developer. Through her new career as a developer she has been able to change her family’s life through financial freedom and growing confidence. She enjoys serving in the community and is looking forward to a new volunteer position with Women Who Code. Christina is a fierce advocate for inclusion in the workforce and hopes to inspire future generations of underrepresented coders.    FAQs   What should I bring into the event?
