Code Kata KittenCode katas are a fun way to learn how to write code in a new programming language. We’ll pick a programming language together and do some fun coding katas. Possible programming languages include C, Java, Python, C++, C#, and JavaScript/TypeScript.

All you need is a computer or chromebook and an internet connection. We’ll use Zoom, and we’ll do group programming: we’ll write the code together, as a group, at the same time, on Richard’s computer. (Do you need help with the computer? Ask Richard for help.) We’ll send you the Zoom URL after you register.

Here’s our plan:

  • April 17: Pick a programming language, start a kata
  • April 24: – possible day off! –
  • May 1: More fun with katas
  • May 8: More fun with katas
  • May 15: More fun with katas

Who’s Richard?

Richard Kasperowski began writing code when he was 12 years old. That was a long time ago. His computer was way less powerful than the phone in your back pocket. Now he’s an older guy who loves helping other people learn to write code. He also writes a little bit, teaches people in industry to code well, and teaches a couple of courses in computer science and Harvard and Boston University.
