Learning To Code

This site is designed to help you learn to code and complete the Junior Cycle Coding short course. It is full of useful lessons and resources to help you along the way to becoming a great coder.

Computer science is present in every aspect of modern society. Correctly functioning software systems allow airplanes to fly from one city to another; give out money at the ATM and diagnose the level of glucose in your blood. Fundamental understanding of how computer hardware and software operate and relate to everyday life is an increasingly important area of learning for students. Problem solving and computational thinking skills are developed in this course as students build and create software projects using their own ideas and imagination. The course looks to build on any coding skills that primary students might have acquired while offering insight into possible future studies in computer science and software engineering.
