Intro to programming: C++ 4:30 p.m.

Thursday, February 25, 2021

Have you ever wondered how your favorite video games and web applications are written? Curious about programming, but not sure where to start?

Join us on February 18 to walk through the basics of programming and get started with the C++ programming language! C++ is versatile, fast, and is frequently used in a wide variety of applications.

This online class is for ages 12+ and will require a keyboard and internet access. We will cover basic input/output, variables, compilers, and more. By the end of the class, each student should be comfortable writing their own basic program.

If the top says the event has not started, this means the host has not yet started the event. Wait a few minutes and then refresh the page. When the event is ready, the 'Join Now' button should turn green  -- do not use the 'Join by browser' option, as it will not let you use your camera!

if you're using a web browser, you may see the below screen. Ignore options 1 and 2, and instead use "run temporary application" at the bottom to ensure you'll be able to use your camera.
