How is the internet and software really put together?  Learn how to build the programs and games we use every day, and make web pages that look good and work well. Try out the the foundational tools of the web, from the basic concepts of databases and servers, to the hands-on languages of html, css and javascript. In this computer science pod, you will become a programmer who can build their own website and games, collaborate with others in real time and across digital distances. Beyond fundamental concepts that frequently change, you will also learn how to think like a programmer and keep up with developments in the programming world.


Your Teacher – Chris Eaton


Ever since he was a wee boy, Chris has enjoyed tools, things with buttons, things that go fast, and learning about how those things work. These interests have evolved with age, from hammers to computers, toy cameras to real ones, and Hot Wheels to spaceships. Chris thrives on sharing his knowledge and experience in a variety of technology related fields including programming, filming/editing, and 3D modelling. If a student has a computer or technology related subject that they would like to learn about, Chris helps them research and implement that subject!
