What to Expect

Over the course of the day, we will write code, explore the mindsets that successful developers have, and learn a little more about Turing. We will ask you to introduce yourself, ask questions, and occasionally share out answers to the technical work we do! Below is our agenda for the day:

  • 15 mins: Welcome and Intros
  • 2 hours 15 mins: Instruction
  • 45 mins: Turing Info
  • 40 mins: Alumni Panel
  • 5 mins: Wrap Up and Questions


We’d love to give everyone a chance to say hi, as well as do a mic check. Please share:

  • Your name and pronouns
  • Your location
  • What brought you here!

We’ll also have the zoom chat available as a tool today. To make sure we are all comfortable using it:

  1. Please share the name of your favorite or most-used app!
  2. Waterfall Practice: Prepare your answer by typing it in the chat box but DO NOT press enter until the instructor tells everyone to “Send” - are you a dog or cat person?

Learning Norms

  • No question is too small. No question is a bad question. Ask them!
  • We all benefit from each others ideas! Push yourself to share out and make sure you aren’t sharing so much that others don’t have the space to do so
  • Please mute your microphone unless you’re the main speaker
  • Have your camera on during class if possible!
  • Questions? Type into the group chat box or wait until end of section when we open it up for questions
