Today Students Who Code turns 2 months old! I started working on this project, when Summer of Making first started, and have continued to work hard on the site. As of right now we have almost 26 users signed up(With over 60% being high school students), over 500 total pages views, and over 200 users who have come to check it out!
I have many excited features and upgrades planned that I can't wait to work on for Students Who Code
I released some new things on Students Who Code today: a new style feature on the login page and added a new user project on the Featured Projects.
I also finally started learning next.js! Been wanting to for a while and this weekend I plan to really focus on it.

A project was sent in to Coding Connected, so I worked on adding it to the Featured Projects list!
I also fixed the Coding Connected Promo so it is more clear that the icons are links.

Fixed the Submit Project form so that way it asks for the project name.
Took time to record things that needed to be fixed so that way I could start working on them this week.
Fixed the link in Coding Connected, so the Code Masters form goes to the new Airtable form.
After moving the submit projects form to airtable yesterday, I decided to also move the Code Masters sign up form to airtable so everything is in one place!
After launching Students Who Code yesterday I uncovered that the Submit Projects form was not working properly. I decided that instead of php I would use an Airtable form instead, which I think will work better!
Today was a very successful day! I launched Students Who Code, and so far it is doing great! Thank you everyone at Hack Club for your feedback.
I have been fixing small bugs that appear and have designed an alert to warn users about features that are down or not working. If you have any feedback on Students Who Code let me know!(studentswhocode.org)
After several months in the making and tons of advice and help, I am proud to announce the Students Who Code is now live!
Students Who Code allows users to sign up to get free course about computer science and learn different coding languages. Due to the lack of computer science education, Students Who Code goal is to increase students access to computer science and coding lessons.
Alongside our courses, Students Who Code has developed, Coding Connected; a community for users to share projects they have made, get help from Code Masters to ask questions or to get advice, and to participate in different events.
Right now we are only rolling out 6 courses, mainly based around HTML/CSS with advanced and new languages coming within the next couple weeks and month.
Please check it out and let me know what you think!

Finishing up some details on the website before launching soon: added a section about Coding Connected and its features on the home page
Hi! I am creating a website and IOS app called "Students Who Code". Students Who Code will allow new coders access to free and easy courses(for students who don't want to pay or don't have access to CS education). And a page/feature called "Coding Connected" which will allow the users to chat with, Code Masters (high school coders) to get help and feedback and to submit projects. The website is almost done and will be launched soon!
The IOS app is what I plan to work on during Summer of Making! It will include a place to track your projects, create to do lists for coding, and get access to our Coding Connected features! This will be my first time building a Swift app! This is a rough concept of the home page for the app
