You’ve been thinking about learning to code for awhile and haven’t quite started.

You’ve tried learning to code before, but you keep hopping around and haven’t made the progress you want.

You’ve been saying you’re going to start learning a new language, but you're not sure it's the right one.

This is for you if...

Learning to code is hard. You don't have to do it alone. We’ll give you an overview of the coding world, help you find the right path for your goals, and show you how to create a personal learning curriculum so you can make real progress on your coding journey.

By the end of the challenge, you will:

Design your learn-to-code curriculum with goals, reflection points, a roadmap, and a schedule that fits your busy life.

Focus and make progress on learning to code by setting clear objectives that you’ll actually stick to. All based on your personal goals, constraints, and lifestyle.

Have coded for 16+ hours by doing tutorials, starting on small projects, and looking at real world applications of your chosen coding objective.

This is for you if...

You don’t have to be an expert to be worth reading. But you do need ideas, writing templates, feedback, a distribution strategy, and, most importantly, confidence in your own work. We’ll give you the tools and support you need to turn blogging into a regular part of your coding journey.

By the end of the challenge, you will:

Generate five ideas that people want to read about and have them vetted and validated by other coders in the community.

Implement a personal writing plan that fits into your schedule and turns your occasional writing into a regular habit.

Write 3 outlines, 2 drafts, and publish at least 1 post using our starter templates designed for popular styles of writing like tutorials, tech news, and technical explainers.

This is for you if...

You’ve been thinking about that side project forever and haven’t made much progress.

You want to contribute to an open source project, but you’re still too scared.

You’ve been saying you’re going to start learning a new language, but can’t find the time.

This is for you if...

The hardest part of coding more isn’t the coding — it’s finding a system and structure that fits into your busy life. We’ll help you set goals, create a roadmap, find a schedule, and, most importantly, hold you accountable to reaching your coding goals.

By the end of the challenge, you will:

Create a project plan for your “code more” objective with goals, reflection points, a roadmap, and a weekly schedule.

Implement a four-step process to develop and iterate on your project plan, and turn your coding objective into reality without burning out (or losing focus!). 

Learn time management tools and strategies to create a personal toolkit with everything you need to tackle your coding objective.
