Description

About the event:

Hack + Help is planning ongoing learning cohorts for those who want to learn a new skill with the increased accountability and mutual support of a class, without all the lectures and cost.

The plan is for members to choose a new topic every few months (for example, Python, or Backbone, or databases) and form a cohort that wants to work together to learn more about it. This could be through a MOOC, online tutorials, code challenges, or something else entirely.

Learning a new skill in isolation is challenging, so if you have a topic you'd like to learn more about, come meet with us on January 28th to help us build a new cohort!

About Hack + Help:

New to coding, or just want to pick up a new language?

Experienced in coding and want to help others learn?

Join us at the new, improved, polyglot, inaugural 2014 Hack + Help session! Bring your laptop and desire to learn (and/or teach!).

This event was born out of PDX.rb but now regularly has experienced attendees who are willing to help you out with Ruby, JavaScript, Python, HTML/CSS, and more.

We are in the process of restructuring, so while we get all the official channels set up, feel free to email shawnatyger@gmail.com with any questions!
