Learn to code at your own pace

Needs a location

Firstly, this is not a meet up invite. This is a running invitation to anyone who wants to learn web development from scratch. This is purely online, no set time and not face-to-face. You can study in your own free time and the mentors will try their best to respond to any of your queries whenever possible via our slack channel or youtube videos. We are a believer of Free Code Camp (http://www.freecodecamp.org/). We believe that anyone can learn how to code. However, finishing Free Code Camp takes time, lots of time. =) Rate of failures in Free Code Camp is high. We came across a blog which reflects typical roadblocks while doing Free Code Camp and the writer has sound advice for those who want to enter the world of coding. Have a quick read of his blog at https://medium.com/@tavillo1980/failing-at-free-code-camp-d593d3001838 Code.Sydney is constantly looking for ways to make Free Code Camp a success story in Sydney. We thought that establishing our own blog with the curriculum included may help promote targeted collaboration among trainees and mentors thereby increasing the possibility of completion. Please visit our site at http://www.freecodecampsydney.org/. Hope you can join us.

Invitation to publish your pet project in appforgrabs.com.au

www.appforgrabs.com.au is managed by Code.Sydney. It is a portal for beginner programmers and beginner data scientists alike to showcase their project to a wider audience. Some of you may want to monetize your project, we can do it together and we make sure you get 90% of all revenue. =) If you have any project(app or data-related) that you wish to publish in appforgrabs.com.au (regardless of the programming language/technology you used), let us have a quick chat at the foyer of 20 Bond St near Wynyard station. If you are not able to come to the city, you can also email me at [masked] to express your interest to publish your work. Cheers!
