Details

Let's build a (virtual) computer from basic logic gates all the way up to programming your own video game that runs on your own operating system! The free course NAND2Tetris (http://nand2tetris.org/) is a beginner-friendly intro to computer science that will fundamentally change the way you think about technology.

This is a casual study group to ask/answer questions and work on the course projects together. We all work at our own pace, so some of us are still on chapter 1 while others are farther ahead.

What to bring:

• Your laptop

• Pen and paper

• (Optional) Small cash donation to support our host Null Space Labs (http://www.meetup.com/NullSpaceLabs/)

Agenda:

• 7pm - Intros, check-in on our progress

• 7:30pm - Ask and answer questions or just work on the projects!

• 9pm - For those who want to stay late, sometimes we watch movies, play video games, or just chat. Null Space Labs is always one big geeky party!
