We’re excited to announce that Code Liberation will be guest-hosting an intro class for women next Wednesday evening on programming button- and LED-based games. No programming experience? No problem. They’ll walk through setting up the hardware, connecting everything to your laptop, and coding a simple game to get you started.

Tickets here on eventbrite, more info below.

Are you interested in creating physical interfaces or games and not sure where to start? Come to this class and create a small playful experience using an arduino with phyical buttons and lights. Code Liberation members Phoenix Perry and Caroline Sinders will be teaching this special edition of Code Liberation at NYC Resistor.

No prior programming experience is necessary, but do bring your laptop.

A limited number of free, sponsored slots are available. Contact hello@codeliberation.org for more information.
