This presentation tells the story of CodeMontana - How it got started & how it scaled up from one student at Bozeman High School that wanted to learn software development to a statewide program to teach 1,000 Montana High School students programming. The presentation will include faculty and students from the program, each telling part of the story...
Pamela Fox will take you behind the scenes of the programming lessons on Khan Academy and show you how we are using modern web technologies like <canvas>, Web Workers, <audio>, and getUserMedia to teach the next generation of programmers.
The Future of Educational Panel discussion brings together key players from the educational landscape who are deeply involved in STEM topics and instructional technologies. Many popular teaching models, especially those that apply or require technology are now obsolete and thus longer longer effective. Because the old models are simply outdated and should be abandoned, new and fresh perspectives are needed for effective teaching models to emerge. This discussion will jump headfirst into the critical issues facing the modern teaching/learning dynamic with special attention to educational technology, STEM, and working with innovative and creative students who often possess skills well beyond those of the teacher, and who are ready to consume content well beyond the curriculum.
Google App Engine (GAE) allows developers to run software on Google's infrastructure. If you're interested in getting your software in front of customers quickly and painlessly, this talk is for you. We'll start by covering the basics of GAE including: Big Table, task queues, back ends and modules. We will then discuss how we use Google App Engine at WebFilings and conclude with a simple demo app.
An introduction to Google GLASS and the Explorer program. Overview of the current developer best practices and brief introduction to the Mirror API. Wrap up with discussion of recent Glassware and their use cases.
Connect with developers, designers, entrepreneurs, teachers and students. We're getting together to push tech forward in Missoula and in education.
We’ll host a full day of tech talks on November 2nd from 8AM to 6PM. Then join up later that evening around 8PM for a casual after party. On day 2 put your newfound knowledge to work building your first or next app. We'll have guided code labs and plenty of time for hacking. Learn how to code something cool!
Nov 2nd is Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead). Right after Day 1 of DevFest head over to the Flathead Lake Brewing Co. in downtown Missoula for a casual after party. Settle in. Maybe have some dinner or grab a drink. The first one's on us. Watch the parade from the third floor Galaxy Lounge. Stop in 6pm or later. Wear your lanyard to network like a boss.
