DEV DEV: init the hack

dev dev init

Remember DEV DEV: summer of code where we took 50 teens and taught them HTML, CSS, Python, and Robotics in the summer of 2013?  The DEV DEV team is back and proud to announce the next program in the DEV DEV series, DEV DEV < init the hack />

What is DEV DEV < init the hack /> ???

WHEN: Friday November 8 @ 6pm till Sunday November 10 @ 6pm
WHERE: Chattanooga Work Space, 302 West 6th Street Chattanooga, TN 37402

DEV DEV (developing developers) collaborators Engage 3D, AIGA, and the Chattanooga Public Library are hosting a hackathon. Having benefitted through collaborations of our own, we want to provide a space in which Chattanoogan developers and designers can meet each other, learn about what others in the community are working on, and collaborate.

 We want a healthy mix of participants including designers, developers, innovators, writers and others of diverse experience levels so please don’t be intimidated. One important part of collaboration and developing a strong community is education, and hackathons are a great place to learn.

If you are interested in simply learning about what a hackathon is but don’t necessarily want to participate or just want to learn about the community, please come to the ceremonies.

 If you are interested in either of the session topics and want to enhance your skills, come as a session attendant. The morning session will be an introduction to JavaScript and the afternoon, a session on how designers and developers can work together better.

Build a robot, set it free

We gave one of the robots we built during DEV DEV: summer of code at the Chattanooga Public Library and gave it a new job: drive around, say hello, and get our tweens and teens into technology.  So far, NUMBER SIX (as we’ve calling it) has been doing a great job.
