Event description

Description

Starting to code can be intimidating.

That's why Galvanize created a Learn to Code meetup that includes online content with over 30 hours of information, exercises, and projects. You don't have to go it alone.

We’ve built an incredible curriculum, created resources, and made learning interactive. This learning series format combine breakout sessions, formalized instruction, and group learning to enable to grasp the skills necessary to become a web developer.

This event will occur on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month. It usually takes around 8 weeks to complete the entire curriculum. We have an on-boarding session at the beginning of every meeting so don't worry about falling behind!

If you can’t attend every meeting consecutively, that’s completely fine as well! The structure of this allows you to come and go as you please and enables anyone, of any skill level, to come and utilize resources for their skill level and needs.

If you’ve tried online tutorials just to get stuck and frustrated, this event is for you. We believe in community based learning to help anyone, of any skill level, grow their skills in web development.

The curriculum is geared towards someone who has never coded and will take you to foundational knowledge in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Learning to code can be incredibly intimidating, we built the learning series to be an approachable and encouraging introduction to web development for the most basic of beginners :)

Already have a little bit of coding knowledge? We have you covered! You’ll be able to breeze through the basics that you already mastered and join some breakout sessions that cover some more advanced topics.

By the end of the 8 part series you’ll be able to create and deploy a static website and create a mad-lib game completely from scratch.
