Do you have a burning idea that you would really like to turn into an app or a computer program, but you're not sure where to start? Come to Hack Day during Spring Break on Friday, April 10, from 10am to 5pm at the Pleasant Hill library! No, we’re not hacking any government websites. But, you will have the opportunity to work with friends to create an app, program, or website that addresses major issues that teens face today. There will be free food (yay!), swag (cool!), and awesome prizes (wahoo!), and no experience is necessary! Just bring your ideas, enthusiasm, and a laptop, and we'll help out with the rest. For more information, visit cccodeday.weebly.com. RSVP by April 1st. Space is limited, sign up soon!
