Code with me: Portland

Hello ONApdx-ers,

Opportunity to get a crash course in coding coming up in May. The workshop is put on by Code with me, a series of programming workshops for journalists across the United States.

Deadline to apply is 9 p.m. Saturday, April 6. (psst, that's tomorrow)

A workshop for beginners: Learn to code with a mentor by your side. You want to learn how to program, but the newsroom always needs you to do something else instead. Maybe you've even tried on your own, but it's hard without someone there to help. At Code with me, a two-day workshop, we pair one professional with every two students, and teach you how to code from the ground up.

We're designed for journalists without coding experience. You'll always have the attention of a dedicated teacher so you can learn at your own pace, and never feel lost. With seventeen mentors total, you'll join a supportive learning community that will continue on after the workshop.

Plus, you'll have fun. You'll learn HTML, CSS and Javascript by building your own interactive project. Our goal is to make this your turning point — an experience that not only teaches the basics of code, but gives you the skills and confidence you need to keep programming on your own and in your newsroom.

      No. We are just helping 'Code with me' get the word out. Make sure you apply at their site. You can contact them for the agenda. You can also chat up @DanielBachhuber on Twitter or over meetup (he's a member of this group) -- he is the organizer of the Portland event.
