Welcome to IDEAA's second annual DC Code Kitchen + Meat & Greet! Join us this year as we embark on another action-packed day full of Android learning, coding, and fun. In addition to our developer talks and menu of challenges (and prizes - - - woohoo!!!), we’ve added a student track specifically focused on delivering hands-on training to ANYONE interested in becoming a developer.
Your day will begin with a few lightning talks from leading developers. From there, you will divide into two groups:
Developers: You will be issued a menu of code challenges that look something like THIS. There are challenges for every degree of expertise, from beginner to expert. These challenges are developed and submitted by our sponsors. Prizes are awarded at the end of the day for those that win the challenge or successfully complete the task.
Students: You will be provided with very easy-to-follow instructions that will walk you through writing your first lines of code. You’ll be working in a relaxed classroom atmosphere with some of the best instructors around. Our crew will leave you with the tools needed to continue your journey into coding after the event! If you are under the age of 18, please have your parent/guardian fill out this participation form.
This year the event will take place at United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in Alexandria on Saturday April 9. More information is available on the event website ---> https://nvite.com/IDEAADC/e1bc
Call for Speakers and Teaching assistants
DC Code Kitchen is currently looking for two things:
1) Speakers and Teaching assistants for the student track that can share their story of how they became a developer and then hang around and help if they need any help getting through the Udacity "Android for Beginners" class.
2) Speakers to talk to the seasoned developers that will be showing up to tackle the Code Challenges. A talk on a cutting edge topic or something that would be of interest to current Android developers.
