Teachers Night Hack Night (Learning Scratch!)

This week we're having our first teachers night. Teachers interested in learning to code, or learning how to teach code should come and meet each other. We will do some demos in Scratch, so make sure to bring your laptop. Beginners and experts are welcome.

Topic: Scratch is a great programming language to start with. Its designed to be used with middle schoolers but has been used successfully at all age ranges from elementary school to freshmen in college! We'll demonstrate how to write your first programs, and talk about strategies for using Scratch in the classroom.

Men are invited and non-teachers are invited too.

About the Meetup:

This weekly event gives ladies a space to code together. Whether you're just getting started, or are a veteran in the tech world, there's a seat for you at the table. BYOL: Bring your own laptop!

You don't have to be working on any project or learning anything new to come to XXHack, it's a great space to just hang out with other women who code.

If you ARE looking to learn a certain language, let us know, and we'll pair you up with a study buddy. More often than not there is another CWDevs member who is working to deepen her knowledge and understanding too, and would welcome a partner in learning.

 

About Us:

Our goal is create a safe space for women in and interested in computer programming to socialize with and support one another in wherever it is their affinity for programming takes them.

    Great & fun presentation. Possibly a little fast-paced for those new to programming. Having a little "project" for us to work on at the end in small groups would be a nice addition to future meetings like this.

    Meetup was great. Thanks Francesca! I appreciate the opportunity to meet with others interested in coding & Scratch in particular. Also fun to see Google offices.

    It was fun. I appreciated Francesca's energy, humor, knowledge of Scratch, and modeling the fun of coding. She also addressed my questions about girls and coding. I wouldn't have minded a little more structured time to work in Scratch with other people around to help.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
