- Matygo is an awesome company run by awesome people. I think that their model is definitely going to be step in the right direction for education and I want to be a part of that.
- Programming is not a mystical force, it’s just a skill that can be learnt and the world will be better off if more people understood it.
- I’m tired of making websites for people who are smart enough to make them for themselves :P.
- I spend so much time mouthing off about better ways of teaching and learning that it really is time I put my money where my mouth is and do some teaching myself.
The next question I guess is what is this going to look like?
The course will run for 6 weeks. It will be taught in Matygo, which has some elements of an LMS (without many of the downsides). It will be limited to 9 participants, as the live, interactive parts will happen on Google Hangouts.
Hangouts will happen at 7:30 to 9:00 PM on Tuesday evenings starting on October 27th.
After the 6 weeks, if you complete all the course material that you will be able to build a great website in WordPress and have a deeper understand of how the internet works and be able to write and hack basic programs.
So if you want to learn to code (and hang out with me online over the next 6 weeks) go check out the course page!
