I’ll be there - happy to help in any way I can.

I’m looking forward to meeting other folks from the forum if they live in the area or can come out!

I think it went very well!

The keynote speakers were really engaging. As somebody who has trouble getting into capital-A Art, I appreciated how they made the “artistic side” of coding very accessible.

These events are a mix of CS teachers coming to teach creative coding, teachers there to learn about creative coding (to then teach it in their classes), and students with a pretty big age range, so it’s really fun to see the different knowledge levels and energy levels mixing together.

I’m coming at it from the other end: I’m a programmer, not a teacher (insert Star Trek reference here), so I always learn a lot about the teaching aspect of it. Hopefully I get a little better each time.

Kelly’s session was especially fun for me, and watching her teach it taught me a lot about teaching. (Say that 10 times fast.)

I definitely recommend any forum regulars check it out next time. It’s really fun to come up with a topic and then break it down into a single digestible unit, and meeting people in person is a really great experience.
