Wyncode Academy Teaching Assistant Chris Scott on Computer Programming: “Coding Is Governed By Logic”
Written by wyncode on 13th May 2014, 11:34 AM
From the fundamentals of Boolean logic to advanced techniques in coding for user interaction, product design, software development, and web applications, Chris Scott is an expert coder from Miami. He is currently one of 5 teaching assistants at Wyncode Academy and one of the reasons that students are surprised by their own ability to learn so much so fast.
In a 9 week coding bootcamp, iteration and reiteration work in concert with methods of instruction whereby students learn to think for themselves using the fundamental principles of logic that govern all programming.
Chris Scott is self taught. “I did it the hard way,” he says, “And it took a while…years,” he admits. But thanks to Wyncode Academy, “We reduce the time it takes for students to learn the same things. I assist them with any problems they may have with the curriculum, and help them understand the idea that code represents objects. I help them with the conceptual side, which can be difficult to “get” at first. Code is governed by logic. Boolean logic is the basis of it. Things happen after an event. For example, the principles of if/then/and/or and how simple operations are completed to form the basis of complex systems. Even the most complex systems are made up of simple parts. That’s true in code, and true in nature.”
As for the idea that simple binary operations can facilitate the solving of complicated problems Chris says, “The original use of coding was by the government to solve bureaucracy through communication.”
