There have been rumblings about creating a coder school like RefactorU or http://www.hackreactor.com/ here in Madison. That is why I wrote my last post on Learning the to code in the M.E.A.N. Stack. I want to get the ball rolling on that so today I setup a project on TownSqua.re. and a Launch Rock Page that people can sign up for to get the conversation started.
We have a good amount of people that have expressed interest in attending, teaching, and even financially backing the project. I also know a number of other companies looking to hire programmers that have expressed interest.
PS: I am not married to the current name. Maybe something like Wisc-coders or something of that nature would be more useful.
