Local Hackathon Milford MA

Web Development Hackathon at the Milford, MA Town Library.

Are you interested in web development? Would you enjoy a day building code and networking with other developers?

You are invited! There will be a day long hackathon held Monday July 25, 2016 from 2pm - 8pm in the Granite Quary room at the Milford, MA Town library. This opportunity to is free and open to New England web developers of any age and skill level. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been programming many years or if you recently your first print “Hello World!”, anyone interested in developing together with other web devs from New England and who wants to get out of the July heat for a day is encouraged to come join us!

This group has been created with support and guidance from the awesome people at Udacity.com. The group currently has participants who have attendeed Python and JavaScript courses offered through Udacity’s web development nanodegree catalog. If your just learning to write code, Udacity designs courses in hand with many top tier companies such as Google, GitHub and AT&T (just to name a few). Udacity offers up to date learning paths which you can watch at their website for free!. You don’t have to be a student or a member of Udacity to be apart of this group. This meetup is a non-profit group and encourages any local web devs who want to network new people, write fun code and enjoy an interesting day of hands on learning at the library.

On July 25th we will likely create a mini-project utilizing a couple open source API’s (ie: Twitter, Leaflet, Google Maps, Soda). Depending on the turn out we’ll figure out a workflow based upon what each attendee is interested in and comfortable doing within the time constraints of the day. You’ll want to bring a laptop with Wi-fi. Light snacks are allowed in the library. Attendees may just show up on July 25th anytime after 2:00 (1:30 if you to help prepare) or let me know about your interest ahead of time by emailing mrosata1984@gmail.com or commenting below!
