Learn to Code Meetup in the ideaLAB

Want to learn or improve your HTML and CSS? JavaScript? Ruby? So do we!

Beginning this Monday (August 4), ideaLAB will offer its first ever adult event: a weekly Learn to Code Meetup! We encourage anyone, at any level, with an interest in programming to come hang out and work on projects. Staff will be on hand to answer questions, but our hope is that everyone will participate in problem solving challenges and group projects.

Raise your nerd quotient! Learn to code!

A bunch of nerds

Lately, my nerd level has felt at low ebb. I’ve yet to find a RPG game to replace my last obsession, and I’ve finally caught up with all the comics I missed while I was out of the country. I found myself wondering: what new activity can I take up which I will have difficulty explaining to my beautiful and surprisingly patient wife?

So I’ve decided to learn JavaScript.

There are fantastic resources online for those who want to learn how to code: I’ve started at Codecademy, which provides a series of self-paced, online tutorials on JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. It’s gamified, meaning that you can earn points and badges for completing lessons and projects, brag about it on Facebook or Twitter, and you can compete against friends, should you have any.
