Hoon School Live

Periodically, the Urbit Foundation has offered synchronous cohort classes which cover the Hoon School curriculum.

If you prefer to learn as part of a group with a hands-on instructor, regular exercises and discussions, and a completion certification, then Hoon School Live will be a good fit for you. We seek to offer it a few times a year.

By completing Hoon School Live as a cohort student, you should be able to read and interpret most nonspecialist Hoon code, produce useful standalone code, and explain subject-oriented programming. We omit some of the written Hoon School content for time, but you should be well-equipped to understand the optional lessons.

The next cohort will start after Assembly 2023.

Until then, feel free to work through the Hoon School docs.
