05 Second Meetup

Codecademy has a "Q&A Forum" now, at the bottom of any lesson's instruction panel, where learners can ask questions as they follow the tutorials and get stuck. Great feature!

Of 14 students who expressed interest in Tech Scouts, nine have taken the "Scout Pledge" to enter the program and qualify for a laptop (if they need one). 

Students who received laptops are in the process of composing emails to thank their donors, and everyone is writing their Personal Plans (due Sunday night) for how they'll spend their time over the next two weeks.

At least three students are in love with Codecademy and learning HTML / CSS.  We have three clients so far: the Franklin Hampshire Regional Employment Board, Justice For Donald, and the Recover Project, with likely addition Girls Club of Greenfield.

If you would like to have your site considered as a client, please complete the Pre-Consult Form at the lower left of the site.  We will get back to you when we resume work July 8th.
