ADVANCED Coding/Programming Boot Camp -- August 5-7 -- Oak Forest, 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. South Suburban College, 16333 Kilbourne St, Oak Forest, IL 60452

REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  July 31.   PD--7.5 hours per day;  Registration unavailable at this time--keep checking for registration information:   Mail-in Paper Registration:  Email a request to Diane Mahinda, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Beginning Coding/Programming Boot Camp Content is application-based using HTML 5, CSS, Javascript, and developing a mobile app for the beginning boot camps. The curriculum used in the beginning boot camp will be made available to all participants to use in developing participants' future high school courses.  Participants with little knowledge of coding and programming are encouraged to join this boot camp!

Advanced Coding/Programming Boot Camp Content--Programming with Data on the Server. This boot camp describes programming and data management on the console and web server. It focuses on the Python programming language (which is among the most popular languages for data and server-side web programming) and creation of structured data in a database. Participants should have taken the first boot camp or have equivalent knowledge. Later in the boot camp, we will be using the web technology of the first course as the graphic interface of server-based python programs, so some knowledge of web development is assumed. This is an ambitious boot camp, so three days definitely would be preferable so participants have time to develop applications.
