Pleas use this thread to promote stuff you want people to know about.
Please don't use other threads to call out conferences/services etc.
that you want people to know about (unless of course you have a
solution to a problem someone has posted about).

I know a lot of folks on this list are in the D.C. area and code, and so wanted to put the word out we are trying to bring the CoderDojo movement to D.C. with (tho we're meeting in Silver Spring for now.)

We could really use three things:

1) Volunteer teachers of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Scratch, Python, Minecraft, Rasberry Pi's, iPhone development, Ruby and whatever else the kids want to learn.

We'd also like to start introducing kids to civic hacktivism - we have 14 year-olds who could probably cobble together something like, for instance, with a little guidance...  Would be cool to see them starting to do things more locally, in their schools, photoblogging their school lunches, if nothing else :)

2) Programmers who can meet us online over a Google Hangout alternate Saturday mornings around 11, to tell the kids a little about their work, how they got started, maybe turn the camera around to show us around their crib?

3) Space to meet with great WIFI - we are in the Silver Spring Civic Building for now, but the WIFI has turned out to be pretty spotty.  I need to line up something better by fall if not sooner.

So drop me a line if you'd like to get involved and thanks!:

P.S. TCamp13 is still on right?  Can't wait!

Heh ah cool - Ill follow up with you online.

Any other programmers out there likely to be coding away on a Saturday morning at 11?  Particularly trying to find women coders (trying anything to even out the gender ratio at our meetings!)

Forgot to mention that we also collect and revive not-terribly-old laptops with Edubuntu, to give away with a little training to kids unable to bring their own.  So if anyone out there has anything like, we're happy to take them off your hands!
