To RSVP visit the Meetup.com Event Invite.

Interested in Teaching Tech? Then We Want You. 

We are in the early stages of establishing a technology curriculum/school here in Asbury Park/Monmouth County (think General Assembly but bootstrapped). We are looking for professionals interested in teaching weekend workshops, 1 day classes, and "night" classes here at Cowerks. Our vision is to provide relavent and usable tech based skills to individuals of all ages and skill levels. Sample classes could include:

  • Ruby on Rails weekend intensive
  • Workshops on Lean Startup/Methodologies
  • Social Media Strategies for Small Businesses
  • Weekend Builds
  • 6 week CSS3/HTML intro
  • iOS/iPad/iPhone "Support Group"

This list is by no means comprehensive - get creative and pitch us!

Even Better - Pay It Forward!  We are also working on a 6 week enrichment program geared towards students of Asbury Park and are looking for volunteers who would like to donate their time for 1-2 times/week for an hour or two. If you interested in getting involved in some capacity email [address removed]. iPad & iPhone Development Support Group Cowerks Pilots iPad & iOS "Support Group" Starting on Monday 4/23 and running for 8 weeks, our iPad, iPhone, & iOS "Support Group" will meet weekly and work through the popular Stanford University lectures.
