Details

We are hosting a special event!

Beside the classic Coding for everyone, we are spending the first hour (a bit less maybe), with a workshop on what is the terminal and how to use it.

As usual we'll start with zero prerequisites.

After a brief explanation on what is the terminal, I'll show you how the terminal can be useful when coding. More than teaching something, I hope to show you what can be the use of the terminal in a day to day usage and maybe inspire you to learn more and start using it.

This is the outline of the workshop: https://github.com/turnintocoders/learn-command-line

=====================================================

We learn programming together, also starting from zero.

Turn into Coders organizes Coding for everyone, a gentle introduction to coding in JavaScript or Python, open to whoever wants to learn how to program, also starting from zero.

It's not a theory lesson: we work together in pairs. Bring your laptop if you can. But if you don't have a one, don't worry. We encourage people to work in pairs and anyway we always have a couple of spares.

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.

--- JAVASCRIPT ---
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/).

--- PYTHON ---
If you are interested in Python you can join too! The kind folks of Python Italia (http://associazione.python.it/) are helping out during the events. We have a list of recommendations (most links are in Italian, but we welcome everyone: https://pythonitalia.github.io/python-abc/). English speakers can start here: https://learnpythonthehardway.org/python3/

--- PROJECTS ---
You can also join to work on your web project or to learn other programming languages, you'll surely find good company.

--- LINKS ---
The project is based on an idea of Founders & Coders (https://foundersandcoders.com/).

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.
