What we're about

OpenTechSchool (http://www.opentechschool.org) 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. This material is then openly shared online and can be further developed by contributions from the global OTS community. OTS’ main goal is to create a friendly learning environment where no one feels shy about asking any question. Everyone is invited to participate, whether as a coach or a learner, and get in contact to organize OTS events anywhere in the world.

Server-Side Co-Learning (on-line)

Online event

COVID-19 update: We are holding all our Co-Learning virtually. If you want to attend, please sign up to our Slack: https://join.slack.com/t/opentechschool/shared_invite/zt-bbyjo92d-xtpp3Wz0kt_NoTQcMQT4rw

Find this meetup in the #server-side channel.

We learn server side programming together! Want to setup a blog using Wordpress? Program your first Django or Rails app? Install an audio server on a Raspberry Pi? Improve your testing skills?

Whether your language of choice is Ruby, Python, PHP or something entirely different, come along. There will be coaches present who can help you with Ruby, Python, PHP and Go. If we don’t know something, let’s figure it out together!

This group is open to total beginners in programming as well as to more experienced programmers who want to get their feet wet in another language or explore new topics.

If possible, bring your own laptop. We have some computers available, but they are a bit slow. Snacks are also very welcome!

Our learning materials are available under https://learn.opentechschool.org.

We run a short intro round at the beginning of the meetup where everyone can say what their project is or how they can help others.

We speak German and English.

IMPORTANT NOTES & LINKS:

• The RSVP-function will be open 7 days before a meetup takes place.

• If you don't have a project to work on, it is often a good idea to do a tutorial or some exercises. See our discourse thread (http://discourse.opentechschool.org/t/ruby-co-learning-resources) that includes our favorites (and add your own).

Web Frontend Co-Learning (online)

Online event

COVID-19 update: We are moving all our Co-Learnings online for the time being.

Please sign up to our Slack (https://opentechschool-slack.herokuapp.com) and find this meetup in the #bln-frontend-colearning channel. We are using a combination of video calls and typing in the chat.

This is all about building things in the browser. Mostly HTML, CSS and JavaScript. We are a friendly group, offering a space to learn together and work on our projects. There's always someone around that is happy to help you or would love to get some help. No matter if you are an absolute beginner or an experienced expert, we want to learn from each other.

If you don't have a project to work on or don't know where to start it's also a good idea to do some online classes or tutorials. We're here to help with that, too. For example check out some of our OpenTechSchool workshop material:

JavaScript for Beginners: https://opentechschool.github.io/js-beginners-1/
Intro to HTML/CSS: https://cssclass.es/materials/

Already have a project? Just hack on it or find others interested in contributing. If you have something working, you can put it on the big screen and show everyone.

Don't have a project yet? There are lots of ideas and cool projects floating around that you can work on!

Here are some ideas if you don't know what to hack on:
