Details

In this workshop we'll build on top of the last two workshops about the terminal (https://www.meetup.com/turn-into-coders/events/fxjxspyxnbtb/) and landing pages (https://www.meetup.com/turn-into-coders/events/fxjxspyxnbmc/).

We are going to introduce a new tool: Git. If you have time before you can start having a look here: https://try.github.io/

Anyway I'll do a brief introduction during the workshop. Then we'll use Git and Github to get our landing page online, using Github pages: https://pages.github.com/

If we go fast we can try leveraging the power of Jekyll (https://jekyllrb.com/) to let our website grow past the simple landing page.

------------------------ the usual format follows ------------------------

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/).

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.
