Blue Hill Public Library
Local programmer and self-described “tech geek” Mike Wolf will present a coding workshop for all ages at the Blue Hill Public Library on Saturday, September 22nd at 2:00 PM. The workshop is sponsored by the library and is free but space is limited, so registration is required, either on the library’s web calendar at www.bhpl.net or by calling the library at 374-5515. Participants can bring their own laptops, or use one supplied by the library—please note upon registration if you will bring your own computer.
Participants will learn how to make very basic “apps” that they can run on their computers, tablets or phones, or how to set up a basic web page, working at their own pace. According to Mike, “To write your first app or put up your first web page all you need is a computer, basic computer skills, and a little more than an hour.”
Mike says that he has found programming computers fun, from when he first learned on the old main frame computers, to now when “it’s easy and almost everyone has a computer in their pocket that’s close to a billion times more powerful than the ones I first programmed!” If there is interest, follow-up sessions may be scheduled.
Mike Wolf has lived in Blue Hill for nearly 20 years. He cofounded the “Blue Hill Hackers,” a group of tech enthusiasts and technologically curious people who meet at the library every Monday night to work together, show off new cool tech and answer questions from newcomers. He’s also a regular helper at the library’s Tech Tuesday Helpdesk. This event is sponsored by the library and is open to everyone.
