mkdir -p Sunday/Code/Dance

Hi there,

This coming Sunday, February 18th, the very first session of Code and Dance will take place.

Whether you are a newbie to the coding world or work with:

• ASM
• C
• C++
• OCaml
• Python
• Java
• Haskell
• Swift
• PHP
• Perl
• Elixir
• Clojure
• MATLAB
• JavaScript

just to name a few, you are welcome to drop by.

Bring your homework/project/idea and dedicate some time to it along with some other fellow coders.

Coding in groups is:

  • fun,
  • productive, and
  • ideal to bounce ideas off.

Here is a TedTalk by Steven Johnson that might shed some light on where good ideas come from 😉

The idea is to meet at Montreal Espace Confort‘s “coding lounge” in order to code for a couple of hours. Afterwards, the dance part will kick in.

If you are willing to learn how to salsa, an intro free class will be available from 4:00pm to 5:30pm by Mr. Alberto Azpuru from the dance school Salsa Etc. It is important to register beforehand in order to attend the salsa class.

Forseeing questions that might arise, here are some answers:

  • Do I need a special attire? No. Just wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Jim Carrey’s “Cuban Pete” attire belongs in a movie or a dance show. So, no worries about that.
  • Do I need to know the basics beforehand? Nope. The only two things you need is a dose of courage to step outside your comfort zone and your willingness to have fun.

If you have other questions, please leave them in the comment section below.
