The Codex: A Coding School for the Community

Tech Wildcatters recently announced that they’ll be accepting registrations TOMORROW on August 22 for their new coding school, with classes beginning September 23.

The Codex is a community-led code school featuring workshops, courses, and hackathons.

“We agreed that Dallas has a lot of meetups and conferences but still felt there was a need,” said Tech Wildcatters Engineer in Residence, Jay Henderson. “A majority of code schools are online and are primarily MOOCs and repeat each other’s models. We see a disconnect from course curriculum, personal discovery and community activity. Codex will focus on students developing PLE’s (Personal Learning Environments) that will help them to learn on their own long after taking the course.”

Jay will kick off the program with a “Website Basics” class. This course will help students get started with custom web design and HTML/CSS development. Signing up for the class is $199, which includes all of the classes and workshops that the program is offering.

“If we are to thrive and advance in DFW, we need to share knowledge and get people aware that the barrier to developing apps is minimal when you tap into the community,” said Jay.

The Codex is also reaching out to anyone who is interested in teaching a course or being a guest speaker during the program. If you’re interested, contact The Codex here.

There are only 21 seats available for the first class, so be sure check out The Codex website and sign up! You can also subscribe to the newsletter for updates and more information on this awesome program.
