Details

Welcome to Project night, the 4th week in our regular 4-week cycle! Come by and either just observe or use any of your skills to participate in the various aspects of building a website or a chat bot. Have a project with a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, robot or other micro-controller? Bring it in to share.

Or do you just need career advice, resumé help, interview practice, or help building your portfolio? Stop by as well, as we're looking to make this a constructive space for such projects as well.

We're also looking for aspiring IT pros & software developers to come in with their own project proposals! You could find some valuable resources for your idea and even build a great team among some like-minded ambitious individuals.

More about Project night

On project nights we’ll dive head first into the projects with which we’re directly involved &/or most interested. If you’re still brand new to coding & project development and unsure how to directly contribute to an active project, that’s perfectly fine. Participate as an observer and take notes; by doing so you will only learn & grow! Project leads & more seasoned developers in our group are encouraged to help our beginners learn, feel engaged and get their toes wet in whatever aspects of projects they feel most comfortable. More than one project workshops may be going on at once during these nights and ideas for new projects are always welcome. Some of our projects in the works and those already suggested are not limited to but also include:

• Web design & Front-end development
• Chatbots
• Raspberry Pi configuration
• Arduino configuration
• Google APIs in practice
• Hardware & Robotics
• Portfolio Building & Career Help

• What to bring
Brains + Computer
