mkdir -p Saturday/Code/Dance

Hi there,

Here is another opportunity to JOIN a code and dance session this month.

The goal of these get-togethers is to work on a project of your own along with fellow programmers for approximately two hours and then shake the week’s stress away on the dance floor.

Code sesh :

We will meet at the Tea Lounge of the Hotel Montreal Espace Confort.

Dance sesh :

There are many places where you can dance on a Saturday in Montreal. However, just for the sake of dancing on the same dance floor here is my suggestion: Moka

New coders

If you are new to coding, bring a book, a project and your questions. Then ask some more questions. Finally, start coding. There is no “perfect” way to start, so you might as well start.

When I started many people told me to find a project and then start to code from there. Frankly, I was skeptical. I thought a more structured (read academic) way would be more suitable. If you are curious to start, I would suggest to start with a project and then dive into a book. It will be much more fun.

Seize this very minute.
What you can do, or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

New dancers

If you are new to salsa or dance in general, this is a golden opportunity.

Carpe Potestatem

You may start with a beginners class before our get-together or just dive into on May 26th.

In case you want to learn the basics, here are some places to start for free.

    • Club 649: On Mondays there is a beginner salsa lesson at 9:30pm.
    • Salsa Etc: Free trial class (beginner level) on May 27th, 2018.

Also, bring a pair of comfortable shoes and let yourself enjoy the rhythm, the melody and the people.

Just so you know, this is no dancing contest. Believe me: everyone is busy spinning and enjoying themselves. So, relax and have fun!

See you on Saturday.
