Not sure if you'll be ready for PennApps, or that your web development knowledge is lacking (or completely nonexistant)?
Not to worry! We are hosting a series of tech talks over the course of next week aimed to benefit all students, both those who have no experience in web development and those who already have a foundation in web dev but are seeking to expand their knowledge.
In that vein, we will have two tracks of tech talks aimed at these two sets of people: the "newbie" track and the "advanced" track.
Here is the schedule for next week. You can find locations for all talks on their Facebook events, which are linked for all the talks.
