FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Where do I park?

Parking will be provided free of charge beneath the Meeting Center building and will be good for 8 hours, so you can walk down to Pine Street afterward to enjoy the downtown holiday decorations and do some shopping.

Do I need to bring a computer? Can I bring a tablet?

If you have a laptop or ChromeBook, we encourage you to bring it, but we will have a limited number of laptops available to loan for those who can’t bring one. We’ll ask a parent to leave a government ID, which you can reclaim when you bring the laptop back. No software installs should be necessary as all tutorials will run in the Firefox or Chrome web browsers on Windows, Mac, Linux, or ChromeOS.

We’ll have one suggested tutorial that works on tablets, but most of the tutorials are meant to run on a laptop or desktop.

Do Amazon Employees need tickets or can we just present our badges?

Because seating is limited, we require ALL attendees and volunteers to reserve a ticket via our Eventbrite Ticketing Form.

Can I volunteer if I don’t know how to program?

Yes. We need volunteers to help with all sorts of tasks to help the event run smoothly. Please select a “non-tech volunteer” ticket for yourself.

What programming languages will you be using?

Most of the Code.org tutorials we’ll feature focus on solving logic problems around programmatic thinking, using point & click or drag & drop interfaces. Some of the more advanced tutorials for teens will use Javascript, Python, or SQL.
