From page A16 | April 06, 2014 |

Everybody Codes, a startup company in Davis, will offer an introductory “Learn to Code” course starting in late April. The curriculum teaches computational thinking to solve math applications, from algebra to calculus.

Anyone who wants to learn to code is welcome. This is a beginning course, and no prior programming experience is expected. The goal is to introduce the company’s new curriculum.

The course will meet from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays, April 22-May 27, at Davis Roots, 604 Second St. in downtown Davis. Participants will learn Python programming language, focusing on math applications, through online curriculum. They need to bring a laptop computer to each session.

The course is recommended for students ages 13 and up and costs $50 for all six sessions.

Instructor Terry Toy has more than 15 years of experience developing software across multiple industries, from web business applications to firmware on geostationary satellites. In addition to his industry experience, Toy has taught numerous web programming courses for University of California Extension programs.

Toy earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science and electrical engineering from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and also has a master of science in management.

With its teacher training and online curriculum, Everybody Codes is a fast and affordable way to start a computer science, computational math or code club at a school. Everybody Codes is supported by Davis Roots, a local business incubator.
