CSX Pair Programathon (Onsite & Online)
This week we’re introducing our first Pair Programathon to wrap up Week 3 of the Build with Code in 2018 structured Journey!
We will cover pair programming best practices and how to improve your technical communication. This is a great way to prepare for the Codesmith interview with our approaching application deadlines of January 26th for LA and January 22nd for NY, as technical communication is central to what we look for in our applicants. Read more on what we look for here (https://www.quora.com/How-can-I-get-admitted-to-Codesmith).
We’ll then dive into CSX materiel with NEW challenges specifically to test your understanding of the material from Units 1 and 2 (Functions, Execution, and the Call Stack & Callbacks and Higher Order Functions).
