D204: Collaborating to Create a Community of Coders

2:15 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Janie Hermann, Public Programming Librarian, Princeton Public Library
Stephen Millett, Technology Associate, Princeton Public Library
Claire Ralph, Director, Code for Princeton

This session highlights a collaboration between the Princeton Public Library and Code for Princeton, the local Code for America brigade, to create a community of coders in Princeton, N.J. The library is working to create this community through initiatives such as partnering with the Municipality of Princeton to host its first ever civic hack-a-thon as part of the National Day of Civic Hacking; hosting twice-monthly “hack nights” with Code for Princeton; and creating learning opportunities for beginning and experienced coders at the library. This session offers an overview of Code for America and the National Day of Civic Hacking, covers lessons learned over the past year of the collaboration, and give tips on how you can grow a community of coders at your own library through hack-athons, coding classes, and more.
