We’re going to be joining learners, teachers and community app developers this weekend at the MaRS Discovery District for the #EdAppHack, a two-day learning opportunity, using the Hackathon model to address the changing dialogue between students and their teachers, mentors, and industry professionals. #EdAppHack will be focusing on the theme of STEM and using the hands-on experience to address concerns and talking points on the changing nature of education, all while creating original apps and with the aide of various supportive collaborators. There’s also going to be a keynote by Robleh Jama, founder of Tiny Hearts, an award winning app studio based here in Toronto, and lots of industry professionals from all ends of Toronto.
Both students and teachers will be able to get their hands dirty, work together and collaborate to brainstorm, build and pitch their app ideas, and it’s all going down this weekend. To get involved, visit edapphack.com and sign up.
Our next event is a very special DevTO presentation where we will chat with 4 experienced developers from Toronto to share their thoughts on issues that impact all programmers regardless of the technology stacks they work in, how long they have been in the field or even which industry they work in.
In this special event, your moderator will be Mark Lapasa and he will host Pearl Chen, Tracy Lauren, Peter Gray and Roland Sing.
With over 80 years of combined experience in the field this will definetely be an event you will not want to miss!
