✓ 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.

We believe anyone can become a developer. Our core values reinforce the belief that…THE TECH INDUSTRY SHOULD REFLECT THE DIVERSITY OF OUR COMMUNITY

We live in a diverse community. Why shouldn’t we work and learn in one too?

This FREE Intro to Coding Workshop is open to everyone and is designed for those who are curious about coding, but who have very little or no coding experience.

Never seen a line of code before? No problem! Basic computer knowledge is required for the best workshop experience.

This critical first step towards your new career will provide you with basic programming terminology – like syntax (trust us, it’s an important one!) and give you the opportunity to practice basic programming ideas. You will leave with a finished product to show off to your friends and family – that’s pretty cool.

Our workshops are taught by Grand Circus alumni who are currently working in tech. They are a wealth of knowledge about all things Grand Circus and the tech community – and they love to talk about both! Once you complete this workshop, you will have a solid understanding of next steps to become a developer through attending a Grand Circus Bootcamp.

What do I need to bring for this free workshop?

  • A laptop with Google Chrome downloaded on it
  • A willingness to learn something new

If you do not have a laptop, please fill out this form 48 hours before the workshop.

Getting to class:

  • Grand Circus is in The Broderick Tower, located at 1570 Woodward Ave – please use the Woodward entrance (not the entrance off of Witherell) – you will see a set of gold doors with a Grand Circus sign in the window.
  • From the lobby, take the elevator up to the 3rd floor
  • Check in at the front desk and we’ll direct you to your classroom.
  • Click here to view the parking map – in addition to these options, there is also metered street parking and free parking at MGM, ~9 minute walk to Grand Circus.

Registration is free. Register here!
