Meteor for Kids: An Introduction

We are hosting a first ever event to introduce software development to kids ages 9-15 using Meteor! **There are about 10+ kids already signed up and we're making the meetup available for anyone else who is interested.**

We will be meeting at the TIES event center and enjoying pizza while we introduce programming to kids for the first time. 

Important

Kids need their own laptop AND parents are expected to stay with their children during the event.

Please RSVP both yourself AND note the number of kids you'll be bringing as your guests.

Schedule:

5:30-6:00 - Eat pizza and say hi

6:00-6:30 - A brief introduction to why programming and Meteor are cool.

6:30-8:00 - Hands on workshop to build a simple application using nitrous.io.

8:00-8:30 - Deploying our apps to the world

Prerequisites:

Please ensure you are registered at nitrous.io. You don't have to have the box setup yet, just make sure you can log in.

    Really interested in this, but I don't think I will able to drive back and forth across 494 without it taking 2 hours. Are you guys planning on recording this? Would be appreciated.

    I'd be interested in observing (my kiddo is only less-than-2) but I'm unfortunately already busy this night.
