The Hudson Area Library is offering a 10-week teen programming class: Thursdays 3:45 – 5:45pm beginning September 14 in the Teen Room of the library. Teens will make apps, websites, games, music, art and more…with code. Code is the language that brings phones and computers to life. In this class teens will explore the core concepts behind writing code by playing games and learning languages like HTML, CSS, Javascript and Python. They will build the problem solving skills that it takes to turn your own ideas into digital realities.

Instructor Alyssa Panetta has been making websites and writing code for over 15 years. She has enjoyed mentoring teens at the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls and The Flying Cloud Institute and working with children of various ages throughout her career. She currently operates as a freelance web developer in Hudson, NY.

No experience necessary. This class is free and open to all teens 13+. Teens do NOT need a laptop but, are welcome to bring their own if they prefer. Registration is on a first come/first serve basis and space is limited so do sign up as soon if you would like to take the class. To sign up visit the front desk of the library, email brenda.shufelt@hudsonarealibrary.org, or call 518-828-1792 x101.

The library is also offering an ongoing program for veteran coders of last year’s coding class: Teen Code Club. Students who wish to continue their learning are invited to join us Saturdays 11am – 1pm beginning September 16 to work on coding projects of their own choosing. Want to build a game? Want to build an app? Just want to play games to build your coding skills? The choice is yours! Mentor/instructor Alyssa Panetta will be on hand to help advance the students’ practice in these open studio sessions.
