CodeDay

CodeDay is a 24-hour programming event held three times a year in 26 cities across the United States and directed at middle school, high school, and college students. It involves conceptualizing and developing a game or app alongside a team of like-minded individuals with the help of mentors. Programming experience is not required, and a diverse selection of workshops are available throughout the event for attendees of all skill levels, from first steps in programming to advanced techniques such as analytics collection and analysis. Tickets are only $10, which includes four meals, always-available snacks, and everything mentioned above.
