Last night the fourth summer of the 9-week ISE Coding Garage program came to a close with 9 students presenting their mobile apps for a chance at $500. In early June, the program started with 13 self-driven students working on their own apps and ended yesterday as 6 apps were presented for judging, with one of the presenters attending remotely.
What we have to say, what you want us to hear.
That’s how our blog works. It’s interactive. Let’s learn together.
We’re over halfway through the 2018 ISE Coding Garage! Yesterday we hit the road for a trip to the University of Iowa College of Engineering's Annex, a new extension of the University of Iowa’s Seamans Center for the Engineering Arts and Sciences. Highlights of the tour included the prototyping studio - taking home nuts and bolts created on MakerBot 3D printers, and the new Engineering Design Studio. Thanks to professor Jon Kuhl for showing the ISE Coding Garage students where their future may lead.
It’s that time of year again. We’re prepping for the fourth summer of the ISE Coding Garage! Soon I will be heading out to high schools in Iowa City to recruit at the AP Computer Science classes. This year's Coding Garage sessions will kick off on Wednesday, June 6th.
Before you ask, no I don’t know why the conference is named ConFoo, but I can tell you what ConFoo is. The Confoo Conference is an international conference focusing on various aspects of web development. It began as a conference focusing strictly on PHP programming, but in the 15 years since its conception Yann Larrivée, the conference’s founder, has grown it into a developer-focused colloquium focusing on multiple technologies, the majority being used within a web-development context.
