Hi all -


We are nearly done securing venues for our spring workshop series. They’ll start on March 1st and continue through the end of April. Expect to see those announced in the next week.

I’ve attempted to organize this week’s announcements by intended audience. Enjoy…!

Learn2Code is an event this weekend with representatives from many of the local coding opportunities.
