What Will You Learn?

During this live coding session, Kelsey and Matt the Robot are leading a dance fitness class designed to get the robots of the world moving, and they need YOUR help to code the dancers! Groove along with the robots as you program their servo motors to move to the beat. CodeJoy participants will learn the basics of coding position servo motors and creating sequences and algorithms.

These 50 minute live virtual sessions will be held DAILY July 19-23 at 4 pm ET / 1 pm PT.

Please note: Projects below are in addition to the live coding session and will require additional time.
