We love what we do, and we want to share it with you! Here are some insights from our members on how our club operates: how we teach, write code, and create a community!

It’s been a hectic board cycle this year, going from a singular dev team president to eight different board members and restructuring midway through the term. These major changes, compounded with our growing number of members (90 members*, and 15+ projects over the year), made for a challenge as we navigated defining our roles together. With that, let’s see what our board thinks about their year!

We’re just in the process of transitioning to our new board, and we wanted to take some time to reflect on this past year! It’s been an unexpected set of challenges in some unprecedented time, but we’re also so proud of all the work that we’ve done. Here are some thoughts from our wonderful board members!

This past quarter, we finished implementing several new and exciting features for the Teach LA Blog! As new members of the Dev Team, this was our first experience working on a large codebase with many contributors. Because of this, there was some nervousness with committing changes that we feared would break everything. But alas, we did not break everything and we hope that these new features will be useful to our readers.

Our Classes & Curriculum page hosts content dedicated to all of our classes, from our introductory Python course to our mobile/web app development courses. As stated on the page, having a place where anyone can access material from our classes is integral to Teach LA’s mission. It’s our hope that by making our classes as accessible as possible, we can begin to reach an even wider audience and, hopefully, a more diverse demographic!

We prepared Cipher Salad in collaboration with ACM Cyber and CityLab at UCLA as an introductory cryptography mini lesson for students of all ages. Cryptography is one of those subjects that can intimidate even a college CS student (ourselves included!), but it’s an important part of CS, and we wanted to make it accessible to as many people as possible.

In this post, I’ll discuss the process of building Passworks, an educational module consisting of several activities designed to teach password security concepts.

The “Getting Mean About Error” module was a two-quarter-long project that we dove into with a negligible background in web development. Along the way, we picked up a few skills and upgraded our web-dev background from beginner to slightly-less-beginner.

Hey there! This is Matt and Leo, Teach LA’s current president and dev team director respectively. We’ve always wanted to make the inner workings of Teach LA more transparent: what goes on at our meetings, what do we learn from teaching, and what does our dev team even do?
