=== 24 Pull Requests with Torino Hacknight ===

For the month of December, if you want, you can participate to https://24pullrequests.com/ a way to give back to open source. The idea is to do something every day, like: writing code, organising an event, answering questions on stackoverflow, writing blog posts about how to use a project, donating money to help pay a projects infrastructure costs, writing documentation, testing, translating and many other ways.

This week we are going to join forces with Torino Hacknight (http://torino.hacknight.it/)! Riccardo is going to do a mini talk at the beginning of the event to give a basic guidance on how to contribute with issues and pull requests.

The notes for the talk are here: https://trello.com/b/jAysKUi0/open-source-101

If you want, even if you don't know how to code, you can find your place.
Even if you are just curious feel free to join and we'll find something to do together!

=== Gadgets & Prizes ===
There will be gadgets for everyone and some small prizes for the most prolific contributors of the evening ;)

If you feel instead that you just need to learn how to code, it's perfectly fine, just keep reading after the break :)

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.
