Learn by doingNo tests, no grades, no cookie-cutter curriculum
In order to be admitted to Learners Guild, applicants must meet the requirements listed.
Beyond a common desire to become a premium software engineer, all of our learners share a drive to learn and grow in a mutually supportive environment, not just intellectually, but socially and emotionally as well. We expect a minimum level of personal development and maturity.
We look for a baseline proficiency in both technical and social-emotional aptitude. It is important to understand that Learners Guild is not designed to support persons who are exploring programming for the first time. We are a learning collective that works best for advanced beginners.
If you are just starting to explore programming, you should take advantage of the many freely available resources for beginners so that you can be best prepared. We recommend Shay Howe’s HTML & CSS lessons, the Intro to JS course on Khan Academy, and the Make a Website and Make an Interactive Website tracks on Codecademy.
