We're all learning to code, whether you've just decided to get started or you've been at it for years. Come hang out for a couple of hours with some friendly fellow coders.
All languages and skill levels welcome. Bring a project you're working on or jump in on some pair exercises. Will you learn something new this week or be the one teaching? Probably both! Bring your own laptop and find out.
Thanks to our host, eSpark, for sharing their space, beverages and light snacks with us. If you haven't already heard of them:

This requires a lot of groundwork: a comprehensive inventory of apps, a reliable device management system, solid teacher training, and online tools for monitoring student success. eSpark Learning provides everything schools need to support personalized blended learning on the iPad and ensure students and teachers get the most out of iPads in the classroom. Their comprehensive solution has helped over a hundred school districts effectively leverage iPads and the vast ecosystem of educational apps to increase student engagement and achievement.
