Multicultural coding workshop

There's a big disparity in the racial makeup of the Portland coding community, so Epicodus is offering an almost-free one-day workshop on Saturday, October 26, from 10am - 1pm for people of color who want to learn web programming.

You can register at epicodus.eventbrite.com.

No coding experience is necessary! At minimum, you should be comfortable using computers. At most, you may have done some HTML and/or CSS, but aren't a professional developer.

We'll cover the basics of how the web works, what part languages and frameworks and other buzzwords play, and then we'll dive into writing some code! By the end, you'll have a good sense of how to continue learning web programming.

I'm asking for an $8 registration fee, mainly so you don't flake, but also to cover me buying you breakfast and coffee! If you can't afford to pay, just drop me a line letting me know your situation and promising me that you won't bail.

Space is limited to 24 participants. You don't need to bring a computer, but you do need to bring headphones (you'll go through some video tutorials).

Feel free to email michael[at]epicodus[dot]com with any questions at all!
