Open Code Lab: what will you make today? CodeLAB + OpenLAB


Walking into an Open Code Lab, you can expect to find programmers quietly writing code. You can also just as much expect a lively conversation, a demonstration or an exploration. Or inquiries into the questions of software design. Need help? When you're ready, just ask.

One group may be working on code challenges some in groups and others on their own. A facilitator may be guiding students playing with new patterns in code for the first time. Two students may be at a white board together or pair programming using TDD.

Wherever you go, we ask: "what brings you here?"

We ask to learn what matters to you.

And help you as best as we can.

We may stay after the hour to help folx who haven't been helped yet.

There will also be folx from our Human Rights Check your Receipts: How do you know your Human Rights come early to join both.

Here are just a few things you can do in the Open Code Lab:

  • build your websites
  • design accessible apps
  • make a game or even play one
  • automate boring/repeated tasks
  • make wanted and needed programs
  • develop a career you love
  • write a guide
  • better than teaching: learn to enable learning
  • ready for: js, react, express, mongo, python, flask, fp, sql & beyond
  • professional skills: git, u/li|nix, deployment, tdd, security, design
  • find your calling
  • interviews, challenges and portfolio development
  • Research a Human Rights issue: find evidence, consider perspectives, consider significance and find relationships in learning
  • Write a blog post using Public Narrative
