Quick Fire Lessons – 6th Jan 2015

Hey folks!

Simply drop in to soak up the knowledge – for free!

Quick Fire Lessons will begin at 091 Labs on 6th Jan 2015 @ 6:30pm.

We’re trying out a new format of class/course/workshop. We aim for it to be practical, concise and quick.

Quick-Fire Lessons will be a weekly event, with lots of introductions to various awesome things. If you want to participate in the problems/exercises please bring your own laptop/device. It’s also fine to drop in for a look & listen.

Our preliminary list for coding content includes the lastest in the following languages/platforms:

  • HTML5 & CSS3
  • Python
  • JavaScript
  • Angular JS *
  • Git *
  • WordPress
  • Java *
  • Android App Development *
  • Basic Machine Learning ***
  • Arduino *

*Asterix’s mean that we cannot possibly cover everything in one class due to topics being very broad/deep.

Things on our wishlist (if we can figure out how to download knowledge directly from the internet to your brain bits)

  • MEAN Stack:
  • MongoDB
  • Express.js
  • Angular.js
  • Node.js

What’s it all about?
Quick-Fire Lessons are fast and loose, with an emphasis on learning by doing.
We aim to provide a supportive, open and safe environment for you to try out new things.

These lessons will be facilitated by Micheál and Darren and possibly a mix of other people along the way through 2015.

See you there!

About
An art-house circuit sensation, this feature-length documentary is visually arresting and possesses a clear, pro-environmental political agenda. Without a story, dialogue, or characters, Koyaanisqatsi (1983) (the film’s title is a Hopi word roughly translated into English as “life out of balance”) is composed of nature imagery, manipulated in slow motion, double exposure or time lapse, juxtaposed with footage of humans’ devastating environmental impact on the planet.

Time: 1 hr. 27 min.
Directed By: Godfrey Reggio
Written By: Michael Hoenig, Ron Fricke

Rotten Tomatoes rating (89%) – http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/koyaanisqatsi_life_out_of_balance/
