EME106 What Goes On Under the Hood: Why It’s Important to Know How to Code
3:00 PM - 3:45 PM Wednesday, March 22
Expo Hall: Emerging Tech Stage
Many people in L&D work with technology that does their coding for them, enabling them to create something exciting without really understanding the code behind it. But if you don’t know how something works, then you can’t possibly control it, mold it, or make it better. The thing decides how it works, and you must simply abide. That’s why, even if you have no intention of making coding your full-time job, it can still be handy to have a basic understanding of how it works and when just a small amount of coding can make what you create even better.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why knowing what your code looks like can help you in the long run
- Why knowing how your content works can make you a better designer
- About resources that can help you continue learning the basics of web programming
Novice to intermediate designers.
