OpenTechSchool is a community initiative offering free programming workshops and meetups to technology enthusiasts of all genders, backgrounds, and experience levels. It supports volunteer coaches in setting up events by taking care of the organizational details, encouraging coaches to create original teaching material.
Everyone is invited to participate, whether as a coach or a learner in this friendly learning environment where no one feels shy about asking any questions.
Learning together is better!
If you're looking to learn, practice and/or work with new technologies and looking to meet and help others achieve the same goal, then this is the weekly meetup for you.
Bring your laptop and whatever you're working on and dive into your project along with us. You'll find a friendly atmosphere and people with whom to share your interests, methods, knowledge and to bounce ideas off of.
Come show us what you're working on!
Playing with bits and pixels is fun, but only to a point. Let's learn how to interact with the real world !
"Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments."
During this workshop, we will learn how to get alerted when our plants need watering by using an Arduino to measure the humidity of the ground and by creating some sound when the earth is too dry.
