Code Corps is live(ish)

Note: I was approached by volunteers for the Bernie Sanders 2016 US presidential campaign who now run the Code Corps project. I am not affiliated or involved with CodeCorps anymore.

We have liftoff!

So, for the past month or two, I’ve been slaving away (or outsourcing work) to create the first Code Corps course: How to Build Your Own Website.

We’ve got great content, but we need people to start using (and importantly: testing) it. For a limited time, we’re giving away:

  • free course content
  • free hosting accounts
  • free domain names

This content alone is worth over $118. All that we ask now is that you share our story with people who might be interested in learning how to build their own website(s) or for you heading over and taking the course. Go to the website and sign up in under thirty seconds.

The aim is to open up education and create valuable online content. Code Corps can’t survive without users, so please help spread the word. We’re particularly interested in training people to create their own personal websites and sites for small businesses and charities, but anyone you might know of could help us immensely at this stage. We’re capping this round at fifty people, so get going ;-)

I’m planning on releasing courses on e-commerce, crowdfunding and online event ticketing in the next few months. Stay tuned.
