Feedback form is now closed.
Each summer, we take a group of teenagers and spend a week in mountains, teaching them programming. The camp has been going on for 20 years. We'd like to share our experiences. What have we learned? How to do such camp in a way accessible to teenagers? Can I join, or even hold my own camp? And what technologies to use?

The answer to the last question is simple: open source, of course. During the past years, we've even started developing our own tools. Let's grab them from Github and have some fun.

The talk is open to anyone, whether you're working in education or not. Come to get some inspiration. And give some, if possible – we want to learn from you and hope for a nice discussion.
