It’s Monday evening, the time every week when a few residents of Ohio County, Kentucky gather at The Hub in the small town of Hartford for coding boot camp. Coding is a precise set of instructions that tells a computer what to do.
“I have to enter something in every field, but I should be able to put something in there, so if I skip over a field it still counts as a token somehow,” said Cindy Sandefur as she goes over her progress in the computer programming language Java in a two-way video conference with instructor Patrick Toner of The Software Guild.
"So what you’ll do is you’ll ask them to enter all of the fields." said Toner. "And you know how you’re calling the setters on the fields, whenever you get the stuff. They don’t enter any information, just don’t call the setter."
