Think of Slack. Think of Discord. This is a real-time communication forum enabling our continued learning.
The difference: we are in control of our data
Virtual or otherwise, interested learners got together for 6 weeks to learn and practice Python programming language for more than 2 years. At the end of every offering, our participants asked: What’s next?, Is there a Level-2?
We now launch this platform so our alumni and alumni-to-be can get together to enhance their learning. Learning is an ongoing journey and our goal is to extend the path we laid.
