The Uncanny Guide to Successful Code Clubs

The Uncanny Guide to Successful Code Clubs

In January 2019, we ran long form interviews with dozens of our most successful code clubs from around the country asking the question, ‘What makes some clubs particularly successful, and can we replicate that success in other libraries?”

The results of this research project were compiled into a document called “The Uncanny Guide to Successful Code Clubs.” It’s become the definitive guide for all clubs that genuinely want to succeed. Download it, read it, study it, and most importantly, do what it says. We believe in you!
