Hit the computers this summer, instead of the pool, and exercise your mind, instead of your arms. Webmakers all over the world are amping up their creative skills and developing coding fun. This fun is taking place in computer labs, offices, and even in homes everywhere. Webmakers, alike, are coming together to enhance their skills and share what they know–practicing for something bigger. And why practice alone when you can participate in a Summer Code Party?
Mozilla is working to promote their Webmaker tools, to assist the webmakers of today and tomorrow, through their Summer Code Party. They’ve developed software such as Popcorn, Thimble, and X-Ray Goggles, along with several others that bring ease to the webmaking process. It’s not just the software that’s lending a hand. Mozilla’s Webmaker tools are helping, “people everywhere make, learn, and play using the open building blocks of the web”. What better way to bring these makers and learners together than a party? Summer Code Parties are popping up all over the world, and gaining extensive interest and excitement.
Mozilla has developed these Summer Code Party as a way for webmakers to come together and share skills and techniques. Cities select venues and invite enthusiastic web creators to attend and participate in the excitement. The kick-off took place on June 23rd and had over one thousand participants worldwide. Mozilla has established a plan to execute at least 1000 Code Parties across the world by September 23rd! Be sure to get yourself to one! Find an Event near you or Host your Own with Mozilla’s help.
Several Pittsburgh locations have hosted similar events to Mozilla’s Summer Code Parties, offering seminars, tutorials, and workshops about web development. Carnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology Center, New Perspective, and HackPittsburgh are three organizations that often host these tech events. Their websites keep updated calendars of upcoming events, similar to tech-friendly sites, such as TECHburger. The digital community of Pittsburgh is thriving throughout the city–now is the time to get involved, webmakers!
