Welcome to Devoxx4Kids USA!
What is Devoxx4Kids ?
This is an initiative by serial entrepreneur Stephan Janssen who is the man behind Devoxx – the best and the biggest developer conference in Europe. The purpose of this initiative is to show kids that it is possible to do something more creative with computers. The goal is to introduce school kids to programming, robotics and engineering in a fun way. This is achieved by organizing sessions worldwide where children can develop computer games, program robots and also have an introduction to electronics.
This blog will report on Devoxx4Kids workshops through out USA!
If you wonder what would a Devoxx4Kids event look like then a video is worth a thousand words.
We are working towards opening a San Francisco Bay Area chapter soon and will be running workshops through out the Bay Area. Scratch, Alice, Greenfoot, Minecraft modding, Lego League, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Beagle boards, and all these fun workshops are very entertaining, enriching for kids, and inspirational for everybody.
