Join us for a Holberton Student led Workshop called 'Courageous Coding" about developing the capacity and resources to sustainably learn as a tech beginner. We'll explore the topics that we're slow to acknowledge, yet often hold us from success. Bring a notebook for internalized brainstorming (don't worry, no need to share (^.^) ) and reflection.
