Its the first time MegaDojos come to Letterkenny and we are really excited!!
Throughout the day here at Letterkenny IT , we’ll be running Coding Workshops covering topics such as Scratch, Mobile App Development, Swift and Python. We will have workshops that are suitable for complete beginners to advanced coders. These will take place in the computer labs of LYIT so you don’t need to bring a laptop with you. (See Booking Below)
We’ll also have several guest speakers on the day and many taking about topics such as Data, Artificial Intelligence and Game Development. While all that’s going on, there will be a tech showcase featuring our clubs and societies showing off their cool tech and how they use it everyday.
It promises to be a great family day 🙂
We will have four sessions over the day at 10am, 11am, 2pm & 3pm . At the next stage, you will be able to select a workshop followed by a timeslot per person from the selection listed below. If your required workshop is greyed out in the session you are booking this means it is booked out and you will need to try another session.
