Re: [school-discuss] Computer Clubs called Tech Captains, a proposal / vision that didn't take hold, yet.

Well, we don't have a coding club at our school, but we do have a Linux users group. As we are a Hmong charter school, the club is called the Asian Penguins.

Here is some information about our club:


We welcome feedback. Let us know what you think.

Thank you,

Hi All,

A few different points from Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

#1. Do you know LiveCode?Âhttp://www.LiveCode.org

If not, check it out. You might be impressed. Runs on Linux. Craft apps for Android and iOS, plus WIN, Mac, Linux. Open source came following a Kickstarter campaign more than a year ago.Â
