Much e-ink has been spilled--rightfully so--about the brave new world we live online. Targeted advertising, data breaches, the NSA; it’s easy to grow overwhelmed by the potential dangers of sharing personal information electronically. Practically everything we do on our phones and computers is tracked, often in an effort to sell us something or gain some upper hand (financially, politically, socially, etc.). Consequentially, there is now an unprecedented amount of detailed data about us that's ripe for the parsing.
Beginning this Monday (August 4), ideaLAB will offer its first ever adult event: a weekly Learn to Code Meetup! We encourage anyone, at any level, with an interest in programming to come hang out and work on projects. Staff will be on hand to answer questions, but our hope is that everyone will participate in problem solving challenges and group projects.
