How might it be possible to organize a week long hackathon where people basically do nothing other than learn how to code in serpent? If something like this is already planned for one of the remaining weeks of this year where is it? If it is not being planned and enough people want to do it how can I make it happen? How much money would it take to bring people at the top of this learning curve together to help the rest of us who know next to nothing?
I don't want some remote online courses where I can learn from the convenience of my home I want an atmosphere of like minded individuals collaborating together in the same physical space. I want an atmosphere of positive stress which comes from being placed into a space where the demand to perform is palpable.
I would consider it reasonable if the learners were in the same physical space but the teachers were teaching remotely so long as at least one full time experienced event organizer was on the ground putting together workshops and leading learning events that taught the key skill sets in modular bite sized sections. It would be worth it to pay 2,000 to 4,000 USD for me to send my lead programmer to such an event.
Its possible that I just didn't look hard enough for such an event and there is a forum post somewhere I missed. If so I'd love the link.
