Hi Folks!

Coders' Corner will be a new event at SCaLE12X this year and you are invited to have a part in its planning. This needs to be a friendly, non-threatening place for people of all ages to get acquainted with coding and discover the fun of making something with code. All ages and levels welcome!

We will have about 10 XOs available that can run several different programming Activities. To keep it simple, we will probably stick with just 2 of them, Scratch and Python (a tutorial version called "Pippy").

Hopefully, we will have at least 2 laptops that can run Codecademy so that we can introduce some HTML/css with the little programs they developed for the recent Hour of Code ( http://www.codecademy.com/learn ). If you have a laptop you could loan for the Coders' Corner please let me know. It has to to have an up-to-date browser.

You don't have to attend SCaLE to get involved! If you would like to help plan Coders' Corner, please go to this link and add your ideas: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ifpy0-xgrgmmYoObGKX31qD9ePBI1cDayEwrgVgamfo/edit?usp=sharing

If you can join the fun as a mentor there on either Saturday or Sunday, please add your name and info to this Volunteer Schedule: https://docs.google.com/document/d/14uF9Ra_x4FuJznfYLjCXNuTcgDIDLryo1DioKh9Bm5s/edit?usp=sharing

One other idea to think about… perhaps we could have some sort of group coding project in the Coders' Corner that would run for both days where people would drop in and contribute their skills. Is there anyone out there that would like to get involved in something like this? Share your ideas for a project like this on the Coders' Corner page.

I hope to hear from many of you in the next few days.
