As one of the fastest-growing skill sets for jobs across industries and disciplines, the ability to understand and write computer code is gaining more emphasis than ever.
Through a free program led by four Duke professors, employees and students have a unique chance to learn coding skills.
The class is provided by Duke’s Innovation Co-Lab, a creativity incubator that enables employees and students to use a variety of resources to enhance research, academic and service missions of the university.
“By the end of the course, you’ll have a deep understanding of front-end web design, something people may have to go to a professional development class to learn,” said Michael Faber, innovation program manager with the Co-Lab. “This way you can go at your own pace, on your own time with the added bonus of our meet-ups.”
The coding course will be taught through Coursera and faculty and staff will receive a certificate of completion upon successfully finishing the class.
To gain access to the course, employees and students must first sign up through the Co-Lab.
