21-Day Coding Challenge from Lighthouse Labs returns

The theme of this year’s challenge is ‘intergalactic,’ and prospective coders will learn JavaScript through daily challenges.

It’s no secret that British Columbia and Canada are facing a digital skills shortage, so a local company has created an initiative to help prepare the next generation of developers and narrow the skills gap.

Building a new skill is difficult and requires commitment, so on November 22, Canadian tech education leader Lighthouse Labs is launching the 21-Day Coding Challenge.

The free initiative is open to both individuals and teams of all skill levels. The theme of this year’s challenge is ‘intergalactic,’ and prospective coders will learn JavaScript through daily challenges.

Lighthouse Labs’ last challenge in 2019 helped almost 10,000 people develop a daily coding habit. This November, they want to help even more future coders learn the foundations of JavaScript to help propel their careers and learn a new skill.

Need experience?

Nope. If you’re an absolute beginner, Lighthouse Labs has put together some prep resources to give you the basic knowledge so you can build your foundation and excel at the daily coding challenges.

Why JavaScript?

JavaScript is present on more than 97% of websites across the web, which shows how in-demand it is for professional developers and coding hobbyists alike. It is also consistently one of the top three coding languages in highest demand on the job market.

If you plan on taking part, registrants are encouraged to use #21DCC when sharing updates online.

Registration is now open online.
