Code the Town! Investing in the next generation of programmers in Austin, TX

image

Austin, TX is a hot-bed for technology.  You can find a user group for just about any technology and purpose meeting almost any day of the week. 

And now, there is a group that intersects with giving back to the community and helping the next generation of programmers.  Code the Town is a group that does just that.  The official description is:

“This is a group for anyone interested in volunteering to teach Hour of Code https://hourofcode.com/us in the Austin and surrounding area school districts. The goal is to get community volunteers to give the age appropriate Hour of Code to every student at every grade level. We want to have our own community prepare students for a technology-based workforce. We also want to build a community of professionals and students that have a passion for coding and teaching. We want to begin the Hour of Code in the high schools first. High school students would then be prepared to teach the younger students.  Once this group has momentum, it will be able to form motivated teams and use software projects done for local non-profit organizations to not only reinvest in our community but also to help our youth gain experience in software engineering.  Whether you are a student, parent, educator, or software professional, please join our Meet Up! This will be fun! And it will have a profound impact on the next generation.”
