Session Topic: Cocktail Camp
***Please note the extended hours starting at 4pm through 9pm***
In our final session of the year, we set you up in a microenvironment that mimics a software development team in the wild. Working together with a mentor acting as the ‘team lead’ your team of two or three will work to build a web site from scratch using whatever tools you feel comfortable using. Alternatively, you can also work towards making a contribution to an open source project to boost your code portfolio! Don’t worry about making your own team; we’ll pair you up with other participants as you arrive, or you can let us know if you want to work with another participant you know.
Do you find hackathons intimidating or worry you don’t have the skills to participate? Come join our micro-hackathon where we’ll support you the entire way if you feel overwhelmed or get stuck! Don’t worry, ours only lasts for 5 hours instead of the traditional 24 – you get your beauty sleep too!
Note: As a special offering, since this is our last session of the year, we are extending the hours from 4-9 p.m. to give you more time to work on your team project and to let everyone show off their great work. We will also serve the traditional programmer dinner of pizza, along with our usual cocktails.
There will be lots of guidance and support for those with no coding experience so come join the fun!
