We hold workshops! These workshops will be dedicated to teaching and practicing mobile and web development.

The workshops are either instructional or hands-on.

  • The instructional workshops will involve potential speakers, professors, or mentors walking through different topics.
  • The hands-on workshops, allow students to work on personal projects in a collaborative environment where they can seek advice and help.
