The #BacktoCode Check-In: Week 4

By Flatiron SchoolSeptember 25, 2017

Today marks the start of the last week of the #BacktoCode Challenge – a 21-day learning challenge, featuring weekly code challenges, prizes, and lectures, and a motivated community of aspiring programmers pushing each other toward their coding goals. Below you’ll find our third weekly check-in on how the challenge has been going and what’s coming up for this final week of the challenge

Last Week: Get Social

Last week, we asked challengers to sprint to the finish line and hit their challenge goals while getting social – leveraging the power of learning with a community and learning about the industry practice of pair programming.

This Week: Get Proud

This week, we’re asking challengers to Get Proud and showcase their entire #BacktoCode Challenge experience.

  • Challenge:

    • Share what you’re most proud of in the Facebook Group or on Twitter with the hashtag #BacktoCode.

    • Invite a friend who you think should learn to code to the Facebook group and challenge them to get started!

  • Prize: Soon, we’ll be announcing the winner of our grand prize – a full scholarship to Flatiron School’s Online Web Developer Program – to one challenger who hit their coding goals and embodied the spirit of the challenge.

  • Community: Inspired by the dedication of the #BacktoCode community, we’ve decided to keep the Challenge Facebook Group going beyond the end of the challenge (don’t be alarmed if you see a name change), and we hope you’ll continue to share your experiences there.

  • Events: Curious about our online program? Join us on Thursday, September 28 at 5pm EST for a Live Info Session on our Online Web Developer Program. Get your own coding journey started with Flatiron School’s free Bootcamp Prep course – and keep your eyes peeled for the grand prize winner announcement!
