Fort Collins Comic Con

Fri, Aug 26, 2016 through Sun, Aug 28, 2016 All Day

Northside Aztlan Community Center

112 Willow Street
Fort Collins CO 80524

A fun, locally-organized, affordable Con experience in Northern Colorado for a great cause. Fort Collins Comic Con is meant to encourage youth literacy through comic books and other pop-culture mediums. We also created the con to fill a void for Northern Colorado geeks, who normally have to drive 2+ hours to attend huge events like Denver Comic Con and StarFest, typically at great cost for attendees and vendors alike. Our goal is to bring together geeks of all ages and types into an affordable Con experience. Whether you appreciate comics, Star Trek, Star Wars, Firefly, Buffy, Harry Potter, zombies, gaming, steampunk, or something else – we’ve got something for you and you can have a great time near your hometown.

Try Turing Weekend

Sat, Aug 27, 2016 through Sun, Aug 28, 2016 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Digital Workshop Center

324 Remington St
Fort Collins CO 80524

Join us for “Try Turing”—a two-day program that will expose you to what it’s like to be a student at the Turing School of Software & Design. During each day, we’ll introduce you to one of our two programs.

​During the first day, you’ll learn the basics of Ruby—a popular programming language for building web applications and writing back-end code. We’ll cover how to navigate around your computer using the terminal, read and write files, and write your own command line applications. By the end of the day, you’ll have built your very own program to post tweets and read timelines from Twitter.

​On the second day, you’ll learn the basics of front-end engineering. We’ll cover HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You’ll learn how to create, style, and add interactivity to web pages. By the end of the day, you’ll build a game from scratch that runs in the browser.

Are you interested in learning how to code, but not sure if a seven-month developer training program is right for you? Do you want to get a feel for what it’s like to be a Turing student?​

Join us for “Try Turing”—a two-day program that will expose you to what it’s like to be a student at the Turing School of Software & Design. During each day, we’ll introduce you to one of our two programs.

​Over the course of the weekend, you’ll engage in many of the same activities that our students do during the week. You’ll work with a pair. You’ll have an opportunity to show off work that you’re proud of. You’ll receive helpful feedback on how to improve your code from our instructors. We’ll even have a Q&A panel with current students and alumni so you can ask any and all questions that you have about the program.

​If you complete the two-day course, you’ll be welcome to skip the application and move immediately to the interview component of the admissions process. You’ll also receive $500 off the cost of your tuition if you’re accepted.
