Meet-up at National Mechanics Monday 3/19/12, 6:00pm – 8:00pm
What: A chance to hang out at the bar and learn a little bit about coding (if you’re interested)
When: Monday, March 19, 6:00 – 8:00
Where: National Mechanics, 22 South Third Street
Why: Because coding is an important and fun skill, and because it’s fun to hang out with other archivists sometimes
Who: ANYONE. Really, anyone. No previous experience or technical orientation required. Really. Or just come and hang at the bar.
How: If you’re interested in learning, sign up at http://codeyear.com/ . Then, bring your laptop with you and we can all take the time to talk through problems, answer questions, or just run through exercises. This is a no-guilt activity, so don’t feel bad if (like me) you’re a couple of weeks behind.
More Information: If you want to learn more about the #catcode trend of archivists and librarians learning to code, visit http://catcode.pbworks.com/w/
What you can do to help:
1. Show up.
2. Encourage your friends and co-workers to come.
3. Distribute an invitation to other LAMs groups that you might be part of.
4. If you can’t make it this time, come next time. We’ll be meeting the third Monday of each month — same bat time, same bat channel.
We’re all looking forward to seeing you there.
