  1. I’ll warn you all right now, this is going to be a FUN workshop!

    It will be very hands-on. We will design together. We will write code together. We will laugh at funny slides together. We will mercilessly beat a piñata in the likeness of your most despised politician and/or celebrity until tasty, sweet, sugar-free treats fall out.* Oh, and we will play games. You won’t even realize you’re learning!

    * probably not really, unless you bring said piñata full of treats
