I started to create the most supportive community of developers and people learning to code. We started as a Twitter chat, gathering every Wednesday at 9PM EST to share resources, stories, and offer support. And now we've grown into an international community from all backgrounds and skill levels.
We produce the weekly CodeNewbie Podcast, new episodes every Monday, where we interview both newbies and industry leaders. We have local chapters in four cities, and hoping to launch more soon. We're also organizing our first conference, Codeland for April 21-22, 2017 in NYC.
