Coding Interest Group

  • Background and formation of the group

The Coding Interest Group was started at the Library in February 2016 as a way for interested staff to learn about computer programming. After a foray into learning HTML and CSS via textbook and online courses, the group shifted to proposing, planning, and executing technology projects that could benefit the Library, including projects on digital signage and an intranet using Raspberry Pi units.
