Coding & Dragons

August 8 - 12  /  9:00 - 5:00

Hear ye, hear ye! Calling all adventurers! Come join us for a week of dungeons, dragons, and coding!

You, and your fellow heroes, will explore a fantasy world together, overcome obstacles, and take on fearsome monsters in an original D&D campaign. But, most importantly, we’ll be telling a group story and seeing how it unfolds!

Meanwhile, you’ll also be learning HTML, CSS, and JavaScript while building a web tool for D&D that you can use for your campaigns and share with your friends.

Everyone is welcome, whether you are a veteran adventurer and coder or you are totally new to coding and gaming.
