Re: [Clojure-NYC] CoderDojoNYC Event tomorrow, teaching Overtone and Clojure

There will be more, but could be on a different tune. We've been jumping around with different platforms. Next one is somewhere near late October and will probably be in Scratch.

Some previous ones: 


I would have really liked to convert one of the 1-day workshops into something longer, say a 4-5 day workshop or a more thorough curriculum. We haven't quite gotten around to that, though. If you're interested in participating/helping more, let me know. A lot of us gettogether once every week or every other week to discuss the next curriculum/steps/plans. We could use more people to extend our bandwidth, heh.

Hi Ehtish, this sounds like a great event. Will there be more? I'm occupied tomorrow but I'd like to mentor another time.

Best,

Hey guys, I volunteer/mentor with CoderDojoNYC to teach kids
how to program
. This weekend, CoderDojoNYC is running a workshop that will be focused on using Clojure and Overtone to produce music. So, we have about 37 kids signed up, 27 parents signed up, and 
not nearly as many mentors. For anyone interested, there's more information on the event here: 
http://blog.coderdojonyc.com/post/61603843500
It's tomorrow, September 28th at the Beam Center (47 Bergen St, Brooklyn, NY 11233).


Sign ups are through this eventbrite link: https://www.eventbrite.com/event/8349831571

And for an idea of what the curriculum is, you can take a look at what we put up on github: https://github.com/CoderDojoNYC/overtone#coderdojo-nycs-overtone-playground

Clojure, music, and sound are not my strong points, so I'm a bit weak in this area. We could use a couple of mentors with a stronger grasp of Clojure and music (i.e. notes, melodies, harmonies, beat frequenices), and sound (function generators, distortion, low pass and high pass filters). I'm just throwing words around with a limited understanding of how they work.

If you had any additional questions, feel free to send me and the mailing list an email.
