Thursday Code Night
Open Code Night
This is a group that meets on Thursday nights from 6-8 and sometimes beyond to learn, discuss, observe, or ignore programming and development with other people. Currently people have expressed interest in learning Python (programming language), C (programming language), SQL (database language), and Arduino (microcontroller for making digital devices).
MIT Python Course - This is a free course from EdX.org and MIT that is very well done. It will be quite challenging for anyone completely new to coding, but is still doable, especially if you come to Open Code to do your homework and ask questions. It is a really great resource if you already have some experience coding but are looking to transition to Python, or if you already code in Python but would like to sharpen your abilities. It doubles as a nice intro to some computer science concepts.
Talk to Ned, he taught himself C for doing cool stuff in the makerspace and may be able to put you on the right path.
I think it'd be nice to have a list of people who attend regularly, what they're interested in learning (and might need help with), and what they can offer to help teach. If you are new to coding and don't feel like you could teach anything programming-related, feel free to add in makerspace skills, or even random stuff like languages you speak and can help people to learn. I'm not going to add anyone here unless they request it, and anyone is free to add themselves. Later let's reorganize this as a list of different technologies and who is interested in learning/teaching them.
Interested in Learning:
- React Native
- Data Science Stuff (more pandas/pytorch/numpy/)
- More Python Webapp Stuff (Django/Flask)
Can Help With:
- Data Science and Machine Learning (Pytorch, Fastai, associated libraries, Neural Networks)
- General Coding Stuff/How to Learn to Code/Self-Teach
- Basic Web Programming
September 2019 Meetings
August 2019 Meetings
- August 29th - First Meeting. Discussed Python, (http://fast.ai fastai) and other things. The donuts were amazing.
