Innovation Conversations: DevCamp

with Nate Stone

Thursday, November 12th, from 1:00-2:00 PM



    30 minutes - What did Denver Public Library do?

    15 minutes - Q&A led by SWON interviewer: Nathan

    15 minutes - Live Q&A featuring your questions

Description: DevCamp is a free, one-week camp on web development hosted by the ideaLAB at Denver Public Library which won the Urban Library Council's 2015 Leading Learning award.  Teens ages 12-19 work side-by-side with professional developers, learning the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, touring local workplaces, and (hopefully) developing a passion for working in the tech industry. We'll talk about our attempt to interest traditionally underrepresented populations in web development; the structure and process of making the camp happen; and lessons learned from partnerships (both successful and otherwise) with local schools and businesses. 

Nate's Bio: Nate Stone is the Program Coordinator for the ideaLAB, Denver Public Library's makerspace in the Community Technology Center. After working for a long list of social justice and youth development programs, he landed at the library in 2011, as all good people with odd resumes eventually do. He teaches web development and other technology classes, creates arts and technology programming for the ideaLAB, develops community partnerships to bring programming and expertise into the lab, and explains to large numbers of people why they don't actually want a 3D printer just yet.

About the Innovation Conversations: Innovation Conversations give you the chance to hear from and speak with library leaders from all library types and from all over the English speaking library world. Each month you can interact with an award-winning or recognized leader in our field. 

The first part of the online meeting will feature a short presentation on the topic that brought this library leader to our attention. The second part is a live interview, covering questions you’ve sent to us in advance and some we’ve thought of. The third part will field your questions, a live Q&A, in the webinar. Ask about the challenges, the key details, and whatever else you would like to learn. 

Together, we'll learn more about successful projects and the people behind them than a brief magazine article might include. We're going beyond the blog post, bringing you the chance to ask the questions you want answered to evaluate, adapt, or implement new ideas for your library. Join us for SWON's new Innovation Conversations!
