Let's Code Together!
This is a club of coders working with coders. We welcome all levels of expertise from just learning to experienced professionals as we work through coding problems and come up with great projects to collaborate on.
This month we will look at and work through a few problems posed on the CodeWars site. We will concentrate on Python problems starting at a very low level and working our way up.
John Sturman will facilitate the challenge and work it through - with your help.
See you there!
Everyone is welcome to join, let's help each other. We encourage questions and collaborative challenges, showcases and co-learning opportunities. So we are open - as our leadership organization OpenHubProject.com - is.
• Important to know: Coding Club is a volunteer-based activity. We are looking forward to meet local techies and web pros as well as total novice who is interested to start this Coding journey. We will work together as community to help each other to learn and grow.
