Katas are coding challenges that are very useful in learning (and mastering) programming logic 🎯. From complete beginners to programming gurus, anyone can benefit from honing their coding skills with them.
There are a bunch of sites that offer Katas. Codewars.com, for example, offers an almost overwhelming number of Katas that are ranked by difficulty and offer immediate feedback on your challenge attempts.
Sharpen your Programming Logic with our free upcoming Katas workshop, taking place October 21st, 18:00H CET. 📍
📌 This workshop is for beginners, so all you need is your computer, a good internet connection, and a willingness to sharpen your coding skills!
📌 We’ll cover some Katas exercises, focusing on the required logic behind solving these. In order to keep the workshop beginner-friendly, we will only code after we have drawn the logical process, and compare it.

How many times did you participate in a project that ended up not being used by people? How many times did you see a feature being developed, but then realized it was not useful, or usable? How many friends told you about their great idea for the next startup, but they failed?
If you are growing in the tech world (or if you’re transitioning to tech), it’s most likely that you’ll participate in building digital products for people, such as apps, websites, and software,... Our world is full of them.
As humans, we are machines for ideas: we want to create things, do more, develop new solutions, grow our businesses and create projects that are meaningful to us💡.
But we have a tendency to jump to solutions VERY quickly. And by doing this, we bring a good amount of personal bias with us.
User Research is the art of getting a pulse of your user's needs before jumping to a solution.
📌 It allows you to :
focus on the real problem (rather than a business need)
identifying and understanding your audience, by putting yourself in their shoes
test ideas without investing 1 cent in development
lower the risks of investing time and money in a solution that will fail
That’s why we’d like to invite you to our next free webinar: User Research: what it is and why everyone should do it!, taking place on the 25th of October at 18:00 CET. 📍
You don't need to be an experienced researcher to start doing User Research. Any project would benefit (at least) a little User Research. In this talk, We'll give you simple and actionable tips to start doing User Research.
We'll share with you a couple of reusable templates on Miro and Notion, and share with you two case studies of what User Research can look like in real life.
The webinar will be led by Ironhack alumni Clemence, who will walk you through her journey of transitioning to freelance, step by step, all while sharing a wealth of tips, tricks, resources, and techniques.
