At Big Sky DevCon this year Rob Irizarry announced his initiative of getting 500 Montana kids programming this year. Soon after he partnered up with some great folks from around the state and decided to double that to 1000 kids. For the August meetup, Rob is going to talk through the specific goals of his initiative, where we stand today, and most importantly how Montana Programmers can be a part.
