Started as an informal class around the kitchen table, Hear Me Code now has hundreds of members spread across multiple classes.
The curriculum consists of twelve lessons over twelve months and focuses on practical applications to real-world programming. Hear Me Coders will also develop a long-term project relevant to their day-to-day work and interests that serves as a culmination of their efforts.
Hear Me Coders learn how to build webcrawlers, use APIs, display information on their own websites, and so much more.
A key component of Hear Me Code is leadership development. Hear Me Coders are encouraged to train others on the skills they've learned, self-organize practice sessions in between classes, and collaborate on projects.
The classes have quickly grown large solely by word of mouth. The community is supported by its members: women at all skill levels from beginner to expert who help to lift one another up.
