Some of you found out about this blog from being involved with CodeBuddies, an organized community online where people gather to study, learn, and code together via Google Hangouts. Normally, I study alone or attend an in-person meetup in the city if I want company, but there is something gratifying about being able to have people hold you accountable to your learning goals when you’re online too. I’ve also been fortunate to have met a lot of cool noobs and professional programmers through the Slack channel for the group as well.
This Saturday I’ll be hosting a 2 hour silent study hangout via CodeBuddies. To join me:
- Go to CodeBuddies.org and sign up (it’s free)
- Once you’re logged in, click here to RSVP to my hangout
- Launch the hangout room in your browser
This is a silent hangout, so you’ll be studying by yourself, but we’ll do 5 min check-ins on the hour and I’ll be available through the Hangout video chat if you have questions or just want to say hello.
You may also want to consider creating your own event through CodeBuddies. If you join, you can schedule your own Hangout on any language, tutorial, or project. Hangouts can be show-and-tell or silent depending on your preferences. We’ve had people teach through the platform, take classes together, build apps, and even contribute to the 2.0 edition of the site.
If you can’t make, consider requesting an invite to the Code Buddies Slack channel. Over 1000 people are there to answer your questions on most popular programming languages and subjects.
Hope to see you then!
