If you have ever wanted to code but thought it was too hard to learn, now is a great time to dive in and get started. The international Hour of Code is a global event designed to demystify programming and make it more accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds with several one-hour programming classes. The NIH Library, the National Library of Medicine, and the NIH Data Scientific Interest Group are partnering to host a celebration of the 2017 Hour of Code.
This year's Hour of Code event includes four hands-on coding classes held mornings from December 4 through December 6 at the NIH Library and by webinar. Because our classes are hands-on, we’re giving ourselves a little more than an hour! Each class will feature a different programming language or application. Classes range from beginner to intermediate level, so please review the prerequisites for each class on the registration pages to ensure that you have the necessary background.
Classes are free but require registration.
