Friend of mine will be doing free online Javascript classes on matrix. Mostly self-directed, in a classical setting, but with (more or less) 1:1 support from them whenever you get stuck. You'll be working on a project of *your* choice. The teaching is text-based, but you don't need to be good at expressing problems in text!

Marginalized folks particularly encouraged.

~3 hours a week, skipping sessions not an issue, schedule tbd with participants

matrix room:

- The sessions will be on Matrix. It works much like Discord, but is an open platform.
- The sessions themselves are about 3 hours a week, but you will likely need quite a bit more self-directed time than that *outside* of the sessions, to make real progress.

- It is an absolute *requirement* that you be motivated to learn about using JS to its strengths, even if that may differ from what you are used to in other languages. There is a lot of JS bashing on the web, but if you approach it from a POV of language hate, you will get stuck.

- Obviously, there will be no tolerance of bigotry or other hateful or disruptive behaviour. The classes are meant to be a safe and comfortable environment. That doesn't mean there's no criticism on eg. technical approach, but it must always be constructive, not adversarial.
