Learn about coding this summer from Khan Academy for free.

Khan Academy is offering a free summer class in coding.

Here is a copy of an email I got today from Khan Academy.

Maybe you have heard of it. It's a site that offers free classes in all kinds of subjects.

Hi,  ________,

I'm Pamela, and I teach programming for Khan Academy. Now that we live in a world where so much of our lives go through computers—our personal interactions, our health tracking, our jobs—I think it's increasingly important for everyone to learn how computers work and how you can program them to do what you want. I love programming because it's empowering and creative, and I want you to get a taste of that too, in our Intro to JavaScript course

I wanted to make it easier for you to get into programming, so I've created our Summer of Scripting. Sign up, and from mid-June to mid-August, I'll send you emails with your goals for the week. 

We'll also have weekly contests for everyone in our coding community, so you'll have even more ways to practice programming and show off your growing skills to your friends.
Spend three hours a week with us this summer, and by the end of it, you'll know the fundamentals of JavaScript, one of the world's most popular languages. See you soon! 

I got this email through signing up at Khan Academy. So you will probably get to be on the mailing list for signing up for this.

Teacher, coder, creator
