We believe that people learn best by working on real-world projects that have practical applications–at work and in their lives. With over 184,000,000 blogs, Tumblr has built one of the strongest and most passionate communities of creators on the web, and the lessons we’ve built in Dash will make it easy for users to learn code to better express themselves through their Tumblrs with a custom theme. For some learners, this may be a first step toward a lifelong passion for coding, or even a new career as a web developer.
The help and support of the team at Tumblr has been instrumental in building these lessons, which are designed to make it simple for beginners with no prior coding experience to quickly and easily create one-of-a-kind themes. We’re excited about this opportunity to work with a company that so many know and love to introduce more people to web development and empower them to learn a new skill and create something unique and tangible along the way.
P.S. To kick this off, we’ll be hosting a series of meetups starting June 21st. See if there’s one in your city and RSVP to meet other theme-makers in the making.
