The CodeNewbie Challenge Is Returning for 2022 with Exciting New Updates

CodeNewbie Challenge 2022 begins on January 31st. Register for Cohort 1 by January 30th.


In early 2020, DEV acquired an incredible, supportive community for early-career software developers and people learning to code called CodeNewbie.

Since then, we've embarked on many exciting adventures together including two entirely virtual CodeLand conferences and the creation of CodeNewbie Community: the official home of CodeNewbie built on Forem.

In 2021, we relaunched the CodeNewbie Challenge together. This collection of email-based challenges including ("Start Coding", "Code More", "Write More", and "Get a Job") existed long before DEV and CodeNewbie joined forces, but together, we updated it and added in additional support options and a central hub on CodeNewbie Community. Those who participated benefitted from structure, public accountability, inspiration, and ample learning opportunities to reach their goals.

We're thrilled to share that we're updating the CodeNewbie Challenge for 2022 (#CNC2022).

#CNC2022 returns on January 31st. This time, we're making a few changes, including:

  • A pre-registration, cohort-based model that allows you to stay in tighter communication with others participating in your chosen challenge
  • Updated resources
  • A brand new "Learn in Public" challenge that will give you the guidance you need to turn your technical learning journey into a tool for others

If you want to make a change in your career or coding journey, we highly encourage you to sign up for Cohort 1 of #CNC2022.

Learn more, pick your challenge, and sign up for Cohort 1 here by January 30th. The challenge officially kicks off on January 31st, 2022.


Cheers to starting to code, coding more, writing more, getting a job, and learning in public with the CodeNewbie Challenge in 2022 ⭐️

Hi @rawan_amr_abdulsattar! Here's how #CNC2022 works this time:

  • There's a sign up period for Cohort 1 (now through January 30)
  • The challenge begins on January 31 via email
  • You'll receive an email filled with resources, prompts, and assignments once per week for five weeks
  • Once you receive the email, you can complete your challenge assignments whenever you like!

I hope this helps 😊
