Special for this week (and maybe until Christmas): 24 Pull Requests
During Christmas time we are going to contribute back to open source projects for the 24 Pull Requests (https://24pullrequests.com/) initiative. Check their site out and come along to work on whatever you like. There will be opportunities for beginners as well!
We learn programming together, also starting from zero.
It's not a theory lesson: we work together in pairs. Bring your laptop if you can.
We recommend Free Code Camp (https://www.freecodecamp.com) for who is getting started. Instead for who wants to get better in JS we recommend to solve and create katas on Codewars (http://codewars.com/).
You can also join to work on your web project or to learn other programming languages, you'll surely find good company.
The group is based on cooperative learning between peers. There is always someone experienced proposing study materials or helping out. Don't expect a lesson though, we are all learning collaborating in front of a computer.
If you don't have a laptop don't worry. We encourage people to work in pairs and anyway we always have a couple of spares.
The project is based on an idea of Founders & Coders (https://foundersandcoders.com/).
Our website is http://www.turnintocoders.com - and we have a super duper newsletter, subscribe!
Check the support material for the meetup (https://github.com/turnintocoders/codingforeveryone/blob/master/meetup-support.md).
All the recommended materials are the prerequisites for our bootcamp (http://www.turnintocoders.it/en/bootcamp.html), an intensive programme to become web developer.
