Virtual Bytes Coding Camp

August 17, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Virtual Bytes Coding Camp

Davenport University’s Virtual Bytes Coding Camp is for those considering turning their love of technology into a career — or students who just love tech and want to get hands-on experience building something of their own.

Created specifically for next-gen software developers, coders, game designers, engineers and innovators, camp sessions will take a deep dive into programming. And, because it’s virtual, all that’s needed is a reliable internet connection and computer.

Camp Details

Session 1: Python Programming

Tuesday, Aug. 17, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Create a game using Python, a popular programming language. We will start by writing simple programs that will print text and perform simple calculations. Then, you will learn about logic and applying “if” statements. By the end of this session, you will create an introductory game!

Session 2: GitHub Management

Thursday, Aug. 19, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

As a follow-up to Session 1, learn all about GitHub repository management. Through demonstration and discussion, we’ll see how to manage code and projects on a git server. You’ll learn how to use GitHub and git server to maintain your own “warehouse” of code and projects. This session will familiarize you with software engineering tools and skills.

Access to the camp will be provided upon registration.

Date: Tuesday, Aug. 17, and Thursday, Aug. 19, 2021

Time: 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Cost: FREE!
