Grand Circus and the Royal Oak Public Library are partnering to bring our popular in-person Intro to Coding workshops to you while the Library is closed – from the comfort of your own home!

We care about you, your health, and your safety. We also still want to help you achieve your goals of changing your career and becoming a developer.

During this remote class, students will be coding right along with the instructors; it is very hands-on. You will be working in a code editing website (codepen.io) while the instructor is teaching the code via ZoomBasic computer and internet skills are a must for this remote class.

What do you need for this class?

  • A computer with Google Chrome downloaded on it

  • free codepen.io account

  • free zoom.us account

  • A willingness to learn something new


There are now over one million open computer-programming jobs. Here at Grand Circus, we are aiming to help fill those positions, one coder at a time.

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.
