CodeNewbie Community

#CodeNewbie Twitter Chats

What's a TwitterChat?

It's a conversation via Twitter that anyone can join by putting the #CodeNewbie hashtag in their tweet. We'll moderate from our account, @CodeNewbies, and get the conversation started every Wednesday at 9PM ET (2 AM the following day, UTC) with some questions on that day's programming topic.

We also host coding check-ins every Sunday at 2 PM ET (7 PM UTC)

How does it work?


  • We'll post a question, like this one: "What are your favorite programming books? #CodeNewbie"
  • You respond to the question, like this: " I loved Chris Pine's 'Learn to Program.' Great book! #CodeNewbie" with the hashtag attached.
  • You can also respond to people directly, like this: "@codergal what did you like about 'Learn to Program'? I've heard a lot about it! #CodeNewbie"
  • After some discussion and back and forth, roughly 5-10 minutes worth, we'll post a new question for the community to respond to.


  • Share your coding goals and wins with us on Twitter using the hashtag #CodeNewbie
