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.
What we have to say, what you want us to hear.
That’s how our blog works. It’s interactive. Let’s learn together.
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.
The 10th Annual Technology Association of Iowa (TAI) Women of Innovation Awards took place yesterday, and Daniela and I were very excited to be in attendance.
The awards recognized and celebrate women in business, government, or academia who are leaders in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Students were also recognized at both the secondary (grades 7-12) and collegiate levels, receiving scholarships in their categories.
The third summer of the 9-week ISE Coding Garage program came to a close last night, concluding with mobile app presentations and an awards ceremony. In early June, the program started with 15 self-driven students working on their own apps, and ended yesterday as 12 students presented their creations for judging. A new enhancement to this year's presentations was the judging app, created by one of the ISE interns, Jordan Pohlman.
