Level Up Your Coding with Code Club (yes, you can talk about it)

  • Coral Sheldon-Hess,

Reading code is a necessary part of becoming a better developer. It
gives you more experience and more insight into How Things Are (or
Aren't) Done; it builds your intuition about how to solve problems with
code; and it increases your confidence that you, too, can tackle
whatever technological problems you're facing.

But you don't have to read code alone! (Which is good. It's really not
fun to read code alone.)

In late 2014, a group of librarians formed two Code Clubs, inspired by
this talk by Saron (of Bloggytoons
fame). I'd like to tell you about how we've structured our Code Clubs,
what has gone well, what we've learned, and what you need to do to form
your own Code Club. I'll share a list of the codebases we've looked at,
too, to help you get your own Code Club off the ground!
