For four days educators, researchers, makers and enthusiasts of Snap! from all over the world will gather online to share ideas, experiences, schemes and artifacts around the joy and beauty of computing. Come and join us! Show us your project, engage in lively demos, discussions, talks, and panels.
The Conference will take place online from Thursday, August 4 to Sunday, August 7, 2022. There will be five hours of program for each of the four days of the conference, with breaks in between.
Computer Science and Mathematics transform how we learn, work and interact with each other. Programming a computer is not just a vocational skill but an act of intellectual emancipation and a medium for self-expression. We invite you to join us for a celebration of creative coding.
Organized by members of the Snap! visual programming language community, the conference welcomes contributions from computing education enthusiasts, K-12 teachers, informal coding club facilitators, programming language-makers, curriculum designers, college professors, MOOCistas, circuit-board solderers, digital artists, computing ethics activists: this is for you! We look forward to hearing your story.
The conference will be online, but we are considering dipping our toes into the post-covid era by making it hybrid, with physical gatherings in Berkeley and in Germany. If you're interested in attending physically, please fill out the survey at https://snapcon.org as soon as possible!
