Last week, I learned about a special scholarship being jointly offered by Women Who Code and Launch School. I first uncovered Launch School a few years ago (when they were called Tea Leaf Academy) and thought their intention to teach code the right way and the slow way was just what I needed. They’re remote, part time and focus on the fundamentals. But they co$t, and while I never lack for ambition and drive, I do lack money to funnel into my studies. I jumped at the chance to apply.
I’m working through the Launch School preliminary work. One of the assignments is “What is Code” by Paul Ford. I’m developing a long list of future reading.
- The Rosetta Code
- Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python (which, to be fair, I first heard mentioned on a CodeNewbies podcast)
