WETHERSFIELD,CONN.-- Coding Club is more than just coding, it’s everything. Our future social media will depend on it.
You may think, how beneficial coding will be in the future? Coding is what is in our social media sites now, for example Tumblr; Tumblr uses coding to be able to add special effects on your blog site.
Mr. Kess, a physics teacher opened Coding Club for all students to come and try with some or, no knowledge of coding.Coding Club is very essential to our everyday lives; because there will be a moment where you will want to look through social media to create your profile or something, but it’s all in code; it is also to help you and teach you step by step how to code, and how to use it in the real world.
Coding Club was made under the name “Technology/Coders Club” but coding itself in the club was made about 5 years ago.
“Coding Club is a place where you can come, and learn about coding, if you’ve only heard of it and never done it before. Or if you’ve done coding before, you can come and work on it there too. Sometimes, I’ll show people like, a specific example of something you can do, or, most times they will just work on some project of their own”, said Joseph Kess, Science/Physics Teacher at Wethersfield High School.
Joseph Kess, Science/Physics Teacher, and an academic advisor of the Coding Club at Wethersfield High School, had said, “...so many things now essentially have a computer built into them,even smaller devices. That it is becoming a more and more important thing to learn.”
Everything is made up of code, whether you know it or not. There are devices that have code, that are in your everyday household; you just never noticed.
Joseph Kess, Science/Physics Teacher at Wethersfield High School, said, “ But now that we are headed into this, what they call the internet of things, where your thermostat is on the internet and your refrigerator is on the internet. Those devices, again now, require people; the manufacture process, who can write that really technical code again, because your refrigerator has a chip in it, but it’s not running Windows. So it’s kind of interesting that we’ve come full circle again, to where now it's a good idea to learn the real basic levels of coding and doing it by hand.”
“...I think it’s going to grow, I think there is more interesting coding, the Coding Club…”, said Joseph Kess, Science/Physics Teacher at Wethersfield High School.
This club was more made for those who just wanted to learn coding or even try something new. Coding is a universal process, that you can communicate and learn from; it would help you in anything from social media to more technical things, like writing your own code or making projects.
