Are YOU curious about learning how to program?
Do YOU want to make stuff?
Do YOU want to be an entrepreneur?
Do YOU want to have more control over the tech you consume?

Well this Maker Party is for YOU!

At Hive Seattle’s Pop-Up Maker Party, you will learn web literacy and how to program with Python and JavaScript languages. You’ll also get the chance to improve the Django Carrots Tutorials and explore other programming languages. And get creative with the basics of binary!
