I am a n00b coder myself, mostly working with Javascript/CSS/HTML.
(Here’s my full story: https://medium.com/@tanyagupta/i-dropped-my-cs-major-because-i-couldnt-do-a-bubble-sort-126e1242d86e#.mn04g7nun)

I noticed that many coders, once they gain experience, forget how to write for someone who is a newbie. So I and my partner (an experienced coder) started a Medium publication aimed at helping beginner coders help other beginners by writing jargon free guides on “n00b code chronicles” on Medium. We are looking for:

What an awesome idea!! Don’t feel like I have learned enough to help out on this yet, but I’m definitely going to bookmark it for later on down the line.

Thanks for doing this!
