Tadeh is a developer and designer in Architecture (buildings not computers). He has been a course author, trainer and open source contributor. Over the years he has taught other designers the value of coding and automation and wants to continue to spread that message to as many people as possible with training seminars and talks. He has been a speaker at national conferences about design, tech and Architecture and loves to talk about new possibilities with innovation and technology.
Computational thinking for creatives – decoding barriers to entry
Getting people to think about computation is just as important as teaching coding.
At work we started a coding basics series for creatives as part of our digital transformation strategy. However it was clear that if the barriers of entry to coding weren’t removed then they wouldn’t get very far. Those barriers are conceptual and cultural but they are surmountable with the right approach.
This talk will review how a group of designers with zero coding experience were brought into computational thinking and how that enabled them to feel more confident and use coding in their projects.
