A framework for teaching code - Table of Contents

This is a work in progress, I'll update it as I go

I've been teaching code for a number of years and have built up a few extremely successful systems and practices. I want to share all of that with you.

In this series of posts, I will describe a framework for teaching code. It would be useful for educators of all different shapes and sizes. This will be relevant to you if you:

  • ever need to deal with junior devs and actually care to grow them
  • work or volunteer as a coding tutor
  • are learning to code and want to know how to learn effectively
  • lecture or teach techies at scale
  • run a code school of any kind
  • produce educational content ...

That's a lot of you, right?

What's more, the systems, mindsets and practices described in this series are not limited to use in teaching and learning code. It's all based on the science of learning.
