OpenTechSchool Athens (Greece)


(Martin Stadler) #1

Hey Athens people!

I’m just staying in the city for a few days and visited Stone Soup and The Cube. There is quite some interest in running OpenTechSchool events so we’re now trying to get potential organizers and coaches together to get things started.

OpenTechSchool is a global community of volunteer event organizers, coaches and learners that organizes meet ups around learning technology skills (like JavaScript, Python, Ruby, CSS, Git, SQL, you name it). We are much inspired by RailsGirls and collaborate with them. There’s no payment involved in any way. We do this for fun, to make our community more diverse, for the love of technology, to improve our own skills in a friendly environment, …). Common event formats are workshops with a certain topic (e.g. Learn Programming with Python) and Co-Learnings, where we just hang out together, work and learn and help each other.

If you are interested in this in any way, have questions or comments, please just comment in this thread. And please spread the word!

I will be at the Android Dev Meetup on Wednesday and would love to talk.
