We have BIG news to share… Today, we’re announcing a new partnership between Treehouse and CodeNewbie for their #CNC2018 project!

For those of you that haven’t been introduced yet, CodeNewbie is a global community of programmers and people learning to code founded and led by the fantastic Saron Yitbarek. Whether you’ve just started to code or are growing your skills, we all know that learning to code can be challenging, but as part of the CodeNewbie community, you find the motivation and support you need to keep moving forward and succeed. There’s an awesome podcast hosted by Saron to tune into every week, as well as popular TwitterChats every Wed at 9PM EST to connect people learning to code across the world (just search for the hashtag #CodeNewbie to join).

So what is CodeNewbie’s newest project #CNC2018 and what does this partnership mean?

CodeNewbie shares in our mission to help everyone and anyone code this year and #CNC2018 gives us the opportunity to show our support for a project that is focused on achieving exactly that. In the video below, Saron explains how and why you should take part in the free program.

So how do you take part in #CNC2018?

Let’s get down to the details so you can get started.
