Coding Club Pro

Learning the ins and outs of one of the most popular programming languages in the world (JavaScript) with an emphasis on ‘learning by doing’
By Sammy Nyakabau - Club Leader


Club Experience

We will be learning JavaScript from beginner level to advanced. The main tool of instruction will be the Mosh website, facilitated by one of the best instructors in the world.

On top of that, students will be provided with premium reading materials as well as videos to guide them through our weekly meetups. These activities are designed to effectively prepare them for the software engineering world. experienced programmers and we help them polish their skills. Lastly, we appreciate the presence of “pro-programmers”, we value your inputs and hope this helps you to become even better.

What to expect

During our weekly meetups, we cover the concept of JavaScript which was chosen by our students from the Code With Mosh JavaScript course.

I provide you with a boilerplate code on how to use the JavaScript Concept.

We participate in in-class code sprints where students solve a couple of problems using the learned concept of the day. Added to our curriculum is freeCodeCamp which allows students to self-pace their learning and actively apply the concepts learned from Code With Mosh by solving programming challenges.

Our meetups are contingent on the assumption that students are actively watching the Code With Mosh JavaScript Course.


* Europe / Asia Meetup: Wednesday at 2pm GMT
* America Meetup: Mondays at 10 am PST
