There are a lot of different ways to teach programming to total beginners: workshops to spark initial interest, workshops to learn advanced things, co-learnings to help each other, mentoring to reach long term goals. And for all of this, there’s probably a community out there who can help you and help you help others through teaching. Exploring a handful of approaches we can see how different community efforts helped turning complete beginners into programmers.
Bastian Albers is a web developer by heart. Having gone through failed startups, agency work and corporate projects alike, a constant companion was always the open web. Open source software, free meetups and countless blog posts to learn from. One day he decided the best way for him to give back was through teaching total beginners to learn programming. And there is a ton of different ways you can do that, too.
