+Stacy Cowley The idea is to come to it cold... we all start the lesson together at the same time. Naturally, some will be faster than others... but we start together. The goal is to keep up with each other, offering help to those who lag a little. So, just sign up for CodeYear, but don't do the lessons... some folks had done them, but we're all starting from the beginning regardless.

But it is also good for anyone who uses the Internet a lot to know a little about how it works. Kinda like driving a car. You at least need to know when to get gas or new tires, when to change the oil - or when to take it to a mechanic.

The first class - 10AM PT - was a success! (Although there were some first tech issues) ... the next class is at 1PM PT.

Learn Code for Journalism with Me is a pilot project aimed at Web journos of all levels and dev newbies that have an interest in learning code, but do not know where to start and may not have a community to support them.

This experimental project merges two incredible platforms (Code Academy's Code Year and Google+ Hangouts) and taps in the community aspect of Social Media and co-learning (#wjchat) all in the name of sharing knowledge and advancing journalism.
