Virtual Class Setup
Our new Live Virtual coding classroom environment is designed to closely replicate the “in person” coding experience we offer at our Kanata Coder Gym.
Kids log into a cloud based computer that is configured specifically for their personal use. All the same coding tools, access to videos, and the ability to talk with the Coder Coaches are all controlled in the self contained, cloud based computer. You need only provide a computer, ideally with dual monitors, and build in audio, through a headset with mic, or separate mic and speakers.
You will receive an email with instructions on how to install the Amazon AWS WorkSpaces desktop client. Please review the video below and when you receive your email, complete the install.
Additional instructions on how to login and start the coding lessons will follow along with a schedule for all the kids. We are planning on very low ratio virtual classes. Future plans to bring our social events such as the CodeAThon and GameJam online are also in the planning stages, so stay tuned, and thank you for your support in these challenging times.
