There were two wonderful workshops that were specially tailored for entrepreneurs and programmers. 36 interested students attended this workshop on 15 Apr 2017.

Session 1: The Agile Mindset
In  45 minute session, we talked about why being “Agile” is more than just following a set of rituals and project management practices. We reviewed the Agile Manifesto, breaking down each of the principles to understand the attitudes and behaviors that must be nurtured to establish a culture and mindset that enables true agility within an organization or project team.

Through this work the participants learned:
- Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
- Working software over comprehensive documentation
- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
- Responding to change over following a plan

Session 2: Intro to JavaScript build tools
Traditionally, we put all our JavaScript into one flat file. However, when we build large client-side applications, writing our code in one long file quickly becomes unmanageable. In order to tame the code, we write and make it much cleaner.
