    Justin and I teamed up on this after realizing (independently) that there was really no solid resource out there for helping marketers learn useful technical skills.

    Would love to get other people's thoughts on it!

    Interesting, I've been methodically going through Jamie Steven's (formerly of Moz) slide deck at http://technicalmktg.com/ and have actually been learning Rails, SQL, iOS and the like. Is this more surface level stuff that marketers can tackle or does it actually get into the nitty gritty of programming and the mindset of programmers that marketers can learn from, quickly building apps/tools, landing pages etc.? I signed up and I"m looking forward to this.

    PS. Felt kinda bad that I missed out on your talk in Toronto!

    This looks excellent. I always love seeing domain-specific approaches to programming because it's so much more relevant to most people.

    That said, if you're interested in diving all the way in, I run an online coding school and we're looking for some help on the growth side. We've offered to do a flexible growth-for-code swap where we teach you to code for some help on the marketing side. If interested, check out the details at http://www.vikingcodeschool.com/growth-for-code. We can cover anything on the spectrum of Ruby/Rails/SQL/Javascript/Front-end.

    Though I'm technical, I've always thought there were limited resources for people to learn. Signed up to see what you offer and see if I can recommend it to others. Thanks! Great idea.

    @justinmares Thanks for sharing this Justin. I signed up and am looking forward to learning more. I'm working on my startup with a technical co-founder and I think this will be helpful in our collaborative marketing efforts.

    Very interesting. As a developer myself I think everyone should learn to code. It's really an invaluable skill. Nothing says I'm a Wizard like completing a task that someone thinks should take a week and doing it in 4 hrs of dev time and 3 seconds of script run time. It's awesome watching people experience that for the first time.

    After reading the lesson bullet points it also sounds like this could be a "how to" for developers looking to use their skills for marketing. This sounds like a really cool course and I'm really excited to check it out.
