If you’re going to be the Boston area next weekend, definitely check out Microsoft’s and the Shared Learning Collaborative’s two-day combination Codeathon and Tagathon event in Boston on Sept 29-30.
The Shared Learning Collaborative (SLC) will launch its education data service and API this December with a goal of reaching 12 million teachers and students. To raise awareness of this exciting initiative and huge app development opportunity, the SLC Dev Team is hosting a number of "SLC Camps" around the nation.
Who Should Attend: People interested in contributing to SLC. They need coders! They need teachers to help design and try things out. They need bloggers, UI designers, artists and project management masters. In short, if you have a cool idea, have developer experience of any kind on any platform or simply want to help out you should consider attending.
