CodeTrain's Learn to Program Bootcamp for Teachers

Codetrain's Learn to Program Bootcamp for Teachers is a great crash course in programming.  This video series is designed for teachers who desire an introduction to core coding concepts and/or who would like an introduction to the P5.js programming language.  It is designed to work with our Teaching Resource Package which contains lesson plans for either P5.js or the Processing language.  The differences between these two close cousins (P5.js and Processing) are discussed in the videos.
