However, many students move here for the program, then move back to their hometown's or somewhere else to work as a software developer.  2. Do I need to bring a computer? You will need a computer for this class. It does not matter what the operating system is as long as you are able to access the internet through a browser. However, if you do not have one, a limited number of loaner computers are available for the class. Contact if you need to reserve a loaner.  3. Where do I park? There is a parking garage across the street between Arizona Ave and Washington Street, just north of Frye and the Circle K.   4. Is the space accessible?  Yes. 5I want to attend but I can't afford it. Are there any scholarships available? We are offering scholarships on a limited basis for students with financial need.
Please contact for more information. 6When should I arrive for the Try Coding Saturday?  Please arrive by 9:40 on Saturday morning to register and get settled.  7. Are kids welcome? Generally people high-school age or older can keep up with the class and are very much invited. Unfortunately the venue does not have enough space for child care, so younger ones will need to spend their weekend somewhere else. If you are registering a high school aged minor, please contact Anna Kummerlowe prior to the event to complete additional paperwork and registration.   *Cancellation of events are dependent on a variety of factors including registrations, inclement weather and pressing needs that come up. If we do cancel your Try Coding workshop, you will be notified more than 24 hours in advance, credited back your registration payment and sent the schedule of other events..
