5 - 8 decemberKlippan, Sweden

Four days of coding, inspiration and Christmas coziness - could there be a better Christmas gift?

Robot Coding &  Arduino Programming


Winter is coming! Let’s light the candles, pick out the gingerbread cookies and code together to the sound of Jinglebells. It’s time for Christmas Coding! 

The Pink Programming Christmas Coding Camp is for anyone interested in coding, no matter if you’re a beginner or an experienced coder. You’ll have time to either work on your own project, online tutorials or take part the workshops that we’ll offer throughout the week in Robot Coding, Arduino or GitHub. We will be staying at a cozy house in Klippan in the south of Sweden. When we don’t code we’ll do yoga, bake saffron buns and watch Christmas movies. 



Workshops

Tengai Robot Workshop

During this workshop you’ll learn how to program a social robot - i.e. you will have to decide what the robot says, how it responds to questions and how it blinks, nods and smiles, during the interaction with a real person. 

We will use Kotlin as the programming language but you don’t need to have any experience in Kotlin to be able to participate in the workshop, but some general programming knowledge from any programming language is needed, preferably Java, C# or similar. You will code on your own laptop and run the code in a robot simulator. 

 Vanja and Alexandra from Tengai Unbiased, will be there to support and help you during the workshop.

Arduino Workshop

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform used for prototyping and DIY projects where hardware and software are combined. In this workshop, you will get a basic knowledge of electronic components and will learn how to set up electronic circuits that we program to create cool outputs. The Arduino boards are able to read inputs like light on a sensor or a finger on a button which, makes them perfect for designing and building devices that interact with the real world. Perhaps an ugly Christmas sweater with wearable electronics?

GitHub Workshop

Get your git going! GitHub is a tool for version control used in almost every professional programming context. We'll guide you through the benefit of good version control, get you started with the software and give you all the tricks and tips.

            Will there be snow like in the cover photo?
            Well, probably not, since we’ll be in Skåne, but we’ll do our best to get the Christmas vibe going either way!

            Is this camp only for those who celebrate Christmas?
            Of course not! In Pink Programming, you are welcome no matter what religion you have or do not have. We who organize this camp simply like the Christmas coziness, but few of us are Christian at all. Apart from culturally Christmas-related activities such as gingerbread baking, there won’t be any religious activities at all during this camp. Whoever you are and however you identify culturally or religiously, you are more than welcome!

            Would you like to organize a camp related to some other holiday?

            Apply to become a volunteer, and then contact the board to check out the possibilities! Pink Programming <3 Camps!
