HOUR OF CODE

@ Jolly Goblin Games
518 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Savannah GA
Saturday, Feb 3: 1-2pm

With technology changing every industry on the planet, computing knowledge has become part of a well-rounded skillset. But fewer than half of all schools teach computer science! Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. 100 million students have now discovered how accessible and fun computer science can be by doing just one Hour of Code.

This Hour of Code workshop is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics.

Ages 6+, free and open to the public.  Advance registration strongly recommended, as space is limited. Parents should plan to accompany young children.

SIGN UP NOW!

PROJECTMQ INDIE GAME AWARDS

@ The Guild Hall Arena
615 Montgomery Street, Savannah GA
Saturday, Feb 3: 5pm

Modern gaming isn’t just about the tech. It’s about telling stories, communicating points of view, and breaking barriers. It’s about creating new ways to interact with our world and one another. It’s about the lifelong process of learning and discovery.

Join us for the ProjectMQ Indie Game Awards, where we’ll celebrate the indie games from the Geekend Indie Game Arcade and the talented local and regional developers who made them. ProjectMQ’s Malcolm Howard will present the People’s Choice Award, and attendees will have a chance to win games, merchandise, and even a Nintendo Switch, sponsored by Savannah-based Avant Games.

Geekenders believe anything is possible…
but hosting this event would be hard without our amazing sponsors!
