Skillshare, a community marketplace for classes, has announced a series of tech classes in Boston from October 10th to the beginning of November.
thoughtbot is participating with three new low-cost, introductory evening classes, in contrast to our full-day, intensive workshops that we’ve been giving for more than four years.
Greenhorn Connect is participating with $500 worth of scholarships for high school and college students. To qualify, students must live in the Boston area and forward their Skillshare confirmation emails to Akaash Achreja. You will receive $10 sponsorship back via Paypal.
