Frequently asked questions

What makes Code with me unique?

• Our staff: All experienced coders, almost all work in D.C., all here to help you
• Our student:mentor ratio of 2:1 means individual attention
• Our belief that workshops should be fun, exciting and memorable

Is this workshop really only for beginners?

Yes. It's for journalists who have very limited or no experience of how to code. If you're unsure about whether or not you count as a beginner, contact us.

Do I need to attend the entire workshop if I register?

Yes. Space is limited and we want all the participants to get as much as they can out of the workshop. Please do not register if you cannot attend for the entire time.

What do I need to bring?

A laptop. A very limited number of computers will be available for those who don't have a laptop. Breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided.

What does it mean to be on the wait list?

Updated July 27: As new spots open up, we will contact people on the wait list in the order they RSVP'd. (Initially, we didn?t know that was possible on Meetup.)

If a registrant is unable to attend, their spot will be opened up to others. If you are on the wait list, you will receive an e-mail if a spot opens up. The first person to register will receive the spot. Unfortunately, because we are charging for this workshop, we cannot auto-enroll the next individual on the wait list.

Who are the program directors?

Sisi Wei tells interactive stories at the Washington Post. Before Sisi joined the Post as a graphics editor, she taught an intensive one-week workshop on data visualization at the University of British Columbia.

Tom Giratikanon builds interactive graphics at The New York Times. He teaches programming to high school students each summer at the Medill School of Journalism.
