Abstract:
When we came to Colgate as freshmen we soon recognized the lack of a programming club on campus. The comp sci courses taught us general programming skills but did not provide an avenue to share your personal programming projects with everyone else. Hence, we decided to form a programming club on campus based on the following principals:
- We will form a welcoming community of people who like to code/are interested in coding
- We will organize workshops where we will teach languages such as HTML, Python, create websites or games, etc.
- Once or twice a month, we will invite someone (in-person or remote) in tech to deliver a small tech talk on a topic of general interest
- We will attend various hackathons in groups (first come, first serve)
- We will organize an annual hackathon at Colgate
I will talk about what we have done so far, which goals have been achieved, what is still left to do and what our future plan are.
