Get ready to be less intimidated by technology as you learn how to think like an engineer and consider the thought processes of programmers, developers, data scientists, and more.
- [Kathryn] Technology can be daunting. Usually, some sci-fi show, or a lone, nerdy genius programmer comes to mind when you think computer science. But the process is much more creative and approachable than it seems. Hi, my name is Kathryn Hodge, and I'm a software engineer that's super passionate about technology. In this course, I'll show you how engineers approach problems, and the type of thinking that goes into solving them. We'll also go into what it's like to create a website or an app, and even go into a bit of analytics. I started learning just like this, by watching videos and digging through the code myself.
And, who knows? After this, you might also become a computer scientist yourself. I'm so excited to share this with you, so let's get started.
