Rails Day - Open Tech School Nairobi 30th November

(Timothy Mwirabua) #1

Hi every one. We are planning to have our second Open Tech School Nairobi meetup on 30th November. We will probably mash it up with the launch of Rails Girls Nairobi on the same day.
We will highly appreciate your advice or support to get any of the following:

  1. Guest speakers.
  2. Coachs
  3. Refreshments

For coaches reach out to all communities with people that just have enough knowledge to be helpful for the learners. Be clear about that you don’t have to be an expert, just know a bit more than the participants. It’s ok for coaches to also learn at the event. Communities could be user groups, hubs, university IT students, … Tell them how much fun and how rewarding it is to help others to learn tech and that they don’t have to prepare or present anything, just be there and be nice. You can point them to the OTS blog where we have some posts about how workshops were with some nice pictures.

Ok. I feel we will have to move it to early next year. It may be too short a notice again and right now organising an event may be tricky. Lets just have it next year when we are more prepared.
