From page A16 | March 23, 2014 |

Davis Roots, a local business incubator, is offering introductory programming and graphic design classes this spring, open to all. Classes start the weekend of April 27 and end the weekend of May 31.

Davis Roots is headquartered at the Hunt-Boyer Mansion, Second and E streets downtown.

Coming up are:

*Intro to Python and Programming, on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students will learn to program in Python and learn the fundamentals of programming that will help them pick up more advanced programming languages in the future. The class will have homework, and students are required to bring their own laptop to every class session.

The instructor is Mikel Mcdaniel, a UC Davis computer science graduate and a programmer at Google. Mcdaniel also has a master’s degree in computer science from Brandeis University.

* Intro to Graphic Design, on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students will learn the fundamentals of graphic design as well as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. The class will have homework, and students should bring their own laptop with Adobe Creative Cloud set up.

The instructor is Deena Freel, a UCD graphic design graduate and designer at iMOS and Coffee and Cigarettes Clothing Company. She has three years of professional graphic design experience across multiple fields.

“We believe that learning how to design and program should be available to everyone, not just to those able to pay a thousand dollars per class,” a Davis Roots news release said. “We’re working to keep our class costs low and offer small class sizes in order to help everyone learn more effectively because that’s the same environment that we’d want to learn in.”

For more information, email organizers through the website, www.davisroots.org.
