Hi everyone, I’d like to float the Idea of a low cost immersive coding retreat for FCCers.
But first I’ll introduce myself. I’m new to FCC and I’m really enjoying the experience. I never thought coding could interest me and I discovered the joy of coding by chance. When I updated my iPad to ios10 I saw this Swift Paygrounds app and because I was bored I decided to have a play and became hooked right away. I’ve always loved puzzles and the coding problems are all like puzzles to me. So I discovered a new passion which has led me to FCC.
I’m Australian and I’ve been traveling around Europe. Now I want to stop and focus my energies into learning code, but as much as I enjoy coding the experience has been solitary which sometimes brings frustration.
I’m in Lviv, Ukraine now, a beautiful and cultured city with activities that is also amazingly cheap. I think I can organize a retreat here from as little as €5 a day including accommodation in a nice hostel.
Anyone can take participate for as little as a week up to three months. Do you think a community in a fresh environment would help motivate, support and inspire you?
What do you think? Would it help you?
