GDI SF Newsletter: UX Workshop, Backbone Workshop, Hour of Code!

From: Pamela
Sent on: Monday, December 9, 2013 8:31 PM

Hi all -


We have two workshops left in 2013: the no-prerequisites-required, highly interactive User Experiences workshop this Saturday, and JS 302: Intro to Backbone this Sunday.


We still have a few seats left for each of them, so sign up, or if you’ve taken those workshops in the past, tell your friends and colleagues about them!


This week is annual CS Education Week, and this year, many organizations have partnered together for an Hour of Code campaign to try to get students everywhere to spend one hour coding. I’m running the Khan Academy Hour of Code, and I’d love for any of you to try it out as your first taste of coding.


You can add me as a “coach” if you want me to see your progress and programs, too. Just sign up for a Khan account, click “Coaches” in your profile, and enter code 5YV6NG. (Feel free to do that at any time, not just this week).


Congratulations to all GDI members that participated in ChimeHack! It looks like one of our TAs, Mary Ann, was on a winning team, and I also saw some excited tweets from our PairUp organizer Gaby.


And now for our normally scheduled links!...
