• Web Frontend Co-Learning

    co.up

    This is all about building things in the browser: HTML, CSS and lots of JavaScript. We are a friendly group that meets every Wednesday to learn together and work on our projects. Bring your laptop (otherwise we can provide one for you) and your challenges and questions. 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. Doors open latest at 19:30h, introduction round at 20:00h. Usually there is no talks or lessons planned but we can come up with something together if there's interest. 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 1 (http://opentechschool.github.io/js-beginners-1/) | JavaScript for Beginners 2 (http://opentechschool.github.io/js-beginners-2/) | Intro to HTML/CSS (http://cssclass.es/materials/) We speak German and English, sometimes even Italian, and of course code. Just come by and check it out! Oh, and bring some snacks, maybe ;) You're also welcome to join our chat on Gitter (https://gitter.im/OpenTechSchool/BLN-WFColearning). We do have a code of conduct (http://www.opentechschool.org/code-of-conduct/).

  • CSSclasses

    Co-Up

    The day will include an optional workshop for beginners (and anyone who feels like refreshing their basics), as well as free hacking and collaborating for experts and newbies alike. Around 3.30pm, we’ll wrap up and everyone is invited to demo their achievements. Please bring your laptop or let us know in advance if you can't bring one, we have a very limited number of (older) laptops available. *** Are you interested in coaching? Great! Please fill in this form (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1UDtWC8L7z4M0VrQabpk03YDVZ1Q16TDrc0gc53r12y8/) and we’ll contact you. *** Agenda for Sunday: 10:30 Doors open 11:00-11:15 Welcome 11:15-13:00 Coding in groups 13:00-14:00 Lunch Break (there are many food options in the area, or you can bring your own) 14:00-15:30 Coding in groups 15:30-15:50 Demos 15:50-16:00 Wrap up An event around CSS… really? Yes! We believe that CSS is one of the quickest and most fun ways to understand how websites are built and get your hands into coding. And that doesn’t mean CSS is for beginners only: Just check out the stunning experiments on Codepen.io. Or see what leading developers are discussing at events like CSSconf EU to get inspired and see how far you can take the language. Who is organizing this? The volunteer teams behind CSSconf EU and OpenTechSchool. We have experience in teaching, organizing workshops and community events, and our motivation is to share knowledge and passion for building fun and beautiful things for the web. We subscribe to the core values of OpenTechSchool and are committed to create a safe and encouraging space for learners and coaches.

  • Creative Code Jam

    Co-Up

    The Creative Code Jam is a monthly gathering of artists, makers, designers, illustrators, coders, musicians, performers, learners and anyone interested in the use of computing skills for artistic expression. The event is free and open to all, regardless of age, origin, gender or experience. The jam is an opportunity to meet likeminded people and get creative together in a relaxed and safe environment. Beginners and first-timers should feel especially welcome! SO WHAT'S GOING ON EXACTLY? Participants are encouraged to team up and produce new work together. Our focus is on collaboration between disciplines, spontaneity and experimentation. We sometimes propose exercises that foster creativity, collaboration as well as an exchange of skills between attendees. The format is open and we like to keep it experimental so if you want to suggest an activity, please let us know! If it fits, we will make it happen :) A NOTE ON DIVERSITY Our best meetups have also been the most diverse. This is no coincidence. If each of us took the step to invite one female friend to join, everyone involved would benefit. We kindly ask you to pause for a minute and think who that friend could be... seriously, just stop reading and do it! 🙈 This invitation extends, of course, to members of all groups that are usually underrepresented at art & tech events. SAFE SPACE POLICY We support the Berlin Code of Conduct: https://rubyberlin.github.io/code-of-conduct/ Please make sure you agree with its content. ACCESSIBILITY Co.up rooms are located on the third and fifth floor, so we will happily provide assistance with the elevator to those who need it. Please let us know how we can make the space more accessible and your visit more comfortable! DO I NEED TO SPEAK GERMAN? We speak mostly English so international guests are more than welcome! Our team also speaks French, Italian, Spanish, Finnish and German... Language availability may vary depending on which organizers are present :) CONTACT Raphaël de Courville [masked] [masked] Or shout random words at us on Twitter: @CreativeCodeBLN (http://twitter.com/creativecodeBLN) WHERE IS IT? Co-up Coworking space Adalbertstr. 7-8 (back of the compound, to the left, across from white mailboxes) The gate is closed? Call: [masked] Note: Our friends at Co.up coworking are letting us use their space for free. HOW COOL IS THAT? ⸝(*⌒ω⌒*)ノ♥ You can thank them by buying one of their 2€ drinks.

  • Data Science Co-Learning

    Co-Up

    We are a friendly group of data enthusiasts who are going to meet every other Thursday to learn together. We meet at the Co.up community event space. Find more information here: http://co-up.de/about.html We start with our introductory round at 7:30, so please be there before. "Data science" might be broadly defined as the collection and analysis of data, as well as the communication of any resulting insights. To this end, data scientists use a broad range of tools and methods: R, Python, databases, statistics, machine learning… The list goes on. No topic is off limits in our group, and every skill level is welcome, so come and learn from others, and share your own experience! This is a Co-Learning group, so no presentations or lessons are planned, but we might occasionally put something together if there's enough interest. The rules: Bring your own laptop and respect the code of conduct → http://www.opentechschool.org/code-of-conduct/. If you don't have a project to work on, or if you're otherwise unsure how to get started, check out our list of tutorials and resources and our list of learning projects: A collection of DS resources, including tutorials, datasets, etc. → https://opentechschool.github.io/datascience/external_resources/ Contact the organizers or coaches with any questions. We speak English and German. See you there!

  • Rust Hack and Learn

    Mozilla Berlin Community Space

    Rust is a new systems programming language developed by Mozilla. Let's meet for open hacking and (co)-learning in our bi-weekly learning group! Everyone is welcome. Rusties of all skill levels meet and hack on cool Rust stuff. Please bring a computer (if available) or tell us if you need one, we can provide you with a machine. Never written a single line of Rust, but interested in the language? Don't worry, most of us are just starting off. There are people around to get you set up and going. 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: - Install Rust https://www.rust-lang.org/downloads.html . - Read the Rust book https://doc.rust-lang.org/ - Complete the Rustlings (a great beginners course!) https://github.com/carols10cents/rustlings
