Coding experience is not required to attend Hackathon Jr. We will use coding language and activities from code.org
A Beginner coder may have zero exposure to coding, will lack understanding of some common language features, design patterns, algorithms, data structures, etc.
An Intermediate coder understands all the code they work with, though might not be familiar with the most advanced features.
An Advanced coder is familiar with why something went wrong, what's going on in the language, computer, and compiler to cause the issue and symptoms. Has functional knowledge of all language features knowing how to properly use them.
