Welcome to the Library Code Year Interest Group!

Welcome to the ALA Connect Community for the new Library Code Year Interest Group! Jointly sponsored by ALCTS and LITA, this group is devoted to supporting members who want to improve their computer programming skills. Whether you are a complete beginner who wants to learn your first programming language or an experienced programmer who wants to connect with other ALA members who program and build on your skills, this is the group for you.

And, don’t let our name fool you. We plan to do far more than simply follow Codecademy’s Code Year lessons, but we encourage you to do that. Our official purpose is "To help members at all skill levels learn to code/program and apply their developing skills for the benefit of their institutions and their own professional development," but our specific activities will be determined by our members. We want to encourage all of our members to actively collaborate with us in developing programs and events. Leave a comment below or join the conversation on Twitter with the #libcodeyear and #catcode hashtags.
