Code for San Antonio: Project and Tech Creation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join us on Monday Night to learn about technology, sharpen your skills, and help San Antonio at the same time! There are ample opportunities for people with any skill set and experience level to make an impact. 

It's easy - show up, become a part of a team & start making a difference in our community. 

With enough experienced programmers, each team will be able to code right away; otherwise, the teams will sketch out the idea with main points needed and assign any tasks to be done before the next meeting (aka making calls to the city or point of interest to get needed data for the future website)

FAQs

Do I need to RSVP? 

Yes, we will be providing food so we'll need a good headcount for the order.

Do I need to be a coder? 

No!  We welcome anyone that is willing to learn or has an interest in helping out the community through open data/tech projects. 

Do I need to have a lot of experience before helping a project? 

Nope, just be willing to learn and contribute towards your project.

Do I need to bring my own laptop? 

This is a PLAN - DO - CREATE workshop.  

We form teams and start working on projects THE SAME NIGHT!

We are firm believers in "learning by doing" as this is an all-around benefit to everyone.

Your contribution will be "real-time."  You will either be coding or spreading the word via social media; both will require a computer.  At this time, we do not have access to loaning computers.  

No laptop & want to contribute via idea creation, planning, or photography (bring your camera)? Come join us as we welcome and encourage everyone at any skill level to participate in making our community, "A City on the Rise."

What are my parking options getting to the event?

Metered street parking after 6PM is FREE

We welcome and encourage everyone with all skill levels to participate as we are firm believers in getting your hands dirty and learn by doing.
