EU Code Week: Here at Last!

(Screenshot taken the night before, obviously!)

Well, today’s the day we’ve all been waiting for, the start of EU Code Week (well, for us)!

Join us LIVE, today at 9:45am, Irish/UK time!

Day One: Meet Byte

Like I’ve mentioned elsewhere, we’ll meet Byte today on Swift Playgrounds and learn a little bit about commands, the building block in our programming toolbox.

We’ve got origami paper dancers, we’ve got all kinds of stuff for you!

So bring your crayons, your problem-solving skills, a couple pieces of paper, and your coding fingers, because you’re going to need all of that and more tomorrow.

Logging On

At 9:45am we’ll kick things off on the YouTube channel, just follow the link at and it’ll take care of the rest. If you have questions, make sure you or someone you can bother to ask questions has a YouTube account.

We’ll spend the first 10 minutes on unplugged activities. Then we’ll move to the iPad and get some coding done.

But we will definitely and without a doubt, get to questions at the end.

I’ve discussed the material we’ll be covering ad nauseam, but you can get the PDF we’re working from at The mini-site also has a breakdown of all the things we’ll be doing today.

I’m very excited that you’ll be joining us for EU Code Week in some shape or form, and we’ll see you on the live feed!
