Last year, Lighthouse Labs helped nearly 5000 people develop a daily coding habit through the 21 Day Coding Challenge. In 2019, we’re shooting for the stars with the goal of helping 10,000 people learn to code and more than $30,000 in prizes up for grabs.
Coding In Community
Coding is more fun with community, and that’s why we offer participants the option to join the challenge as an individual or a team. Last year, our winning team from freeCodeCamp brought together everyone from absolute beginners to professional coders, while the all-women’s dev group who topped the leaderboard drew their 130 team members from a community Facebook group. Coding alongside others - sharing your roadblocks and triumphs as you work through the same challenges - is great for community-building.
Maybe you’ll join the challenge as an office team-building exercise. Perhaps you’re part of a cross-discipline networking group, and you’ll take this opportunity to start a team to build connections and network with others over a shared common goal. Or just maybe you’ll start a family team and foster a little friendly family competition. You’re only limited by your imagination - wherever you can share a challenge with someone and you’d like to build community, you can take part in the 21DCC together.
Ready To Win?
Best of all, there are amazing prizes to be won. The winning team earns a trip for two to Boston, including a tour of Harvard and MIT, two city passes, and access to the Museum of Science.
There are also finalist prizes, daily prizes just for completing your challenge on time, and team prizes for the team with the most points on the leaderboard by May 21.
