Do you knit, crochet, embroider, sew? Have you ever followed a pattern, or better yet, made a pattern yourself? If so, you have the foundational skills needed for coding! Join Ursula Wolz for part II of out series, "Debunking the Myths of Coding" as we dive into textiles, and how they can help you become a better developer!
You asked, she's answering:
- How do textiles relate to coding?

- Where should a 'maker' start in this process?
- & more!
