Start Time: 12:00
Date: 2011-10-26
End Time: 17:00






Young Rewired State is an initiative to give developers aged under 18 the chance to meet, share and build applications. MadLab has been the host to the summer YRS in both 2010 and 2011 – here are some photos from YRS 2011. Whatever your level or experience, If you are aged under 18 and into coding, then come and meet like-minds.

Recently, there has been focus on how computer science education in schools is delivered, and whether it is appropriate to the skills needed. Well, two YRS’ers have been busy writing their own “how-to-code” manual for kids, soon to be distributed by a national newspaper – come along to meet them.

There will be plenty of chance to demo projects and share stories – please make sure you let us and your parents know you are coming.
