What’s the best coding skills to learn to get involved with chilipeppr development?

I have almost no experience with coding, but I love what you guys are doing.

One option I’m aware of is doing a code academy course, but I have no idea which type of coding would be most relevant.

Any advise really appreciated.

@Jody_Koomen you’ll need to spin up on Javascript for sure

Chilipeppr itself is entirely browser based, so HTML + CSS for the basic elements that you see, and lots of JavaScript for everything else :slight_smile: There’s also SPJS which is the tiny “let the browser talk to physical hardware devices” app, this is written in Go, but you don’t need to deal with this if you want to write a new widget/ add features. There are 3 tutorial videos John did at the bottom of the chilieppr homepage showing how to get set up with Cloud9 IDE. My advice, just dive right in - CP is extremely nicely written and the code is well documented.

And of course, we’re here to help, so any questions just ask!

Watch all of the videos on the home page to get a crash course.
