Welcome to Mega Summer Camp!
Mega Summer Camp is an annual summer event that I have been hosting the recent years. It is back this year too, with many new surprises!
What is Mega Summer Camp?
Mega Summer Camp is an online “camp”, where everyone can leave and join freely. The camp will include Hopscotch-related tutorials, coding tips, classes, collabs, and challenges! It also includes lots of other fun stuff related to Hopscotch. In the end, there will be a challenge to summarize the whole camp, which will happen after the summer contest. A more detailed schedule will be posted in the topic soon!
How to join
Join the @MegaSCamp forum group (please leave this group if you are in it and don’t want to participate this year) and reply below to join the camp! You can join and leave freely at any time. You don’t have to do all the challenges and activities in the camp, but of course, I get super happy when you do! There are no commitments, but please include how a brief estimation of how active you can be in the camp in the post where you say that you want to join. Try to make it as accurate as possible, but I understand if it is hard to make such estimates.
What’s new for 2020?
- In case you are too busy to do a particular challenge, there will be a more easy, alternative challenge posted that you can enter. This is also optional, but it will (hopefully) allow more people to be able to enter, and you don’t have to feel like you have to spend a lot of time on your project, because the alternative challenges are easier.
- There will, hopefully, be community lead classes. If you want to lead one, please reply to this topic.
- Improved schedule and scheduling both internally and publicly with a clear, public schedule.
The camp will start at 2020-06-18T22:00:00Z, but you can join after that date! The end date for the camp is not decided yet.
About summer camp topics
These topics can easily turn into “general topics”, which is one reason behind that we said this last year:
As it seems right now, this also applies to this year.
Moderation and use of this topic
This topic is not for general discussions! For that, I redirect to the current “You Can Talk About Your Hopscotch Coding Here”-topic, which you can find using the search bar or by going here. Not all users might be able to see this, but that is not an excuse for using this topic as a general discussion topic. Hopscotch-related discussions behind members outside the camp schedule is something I encourage, but not on this topic. On this topic, you post discussion and information related to what is happening in the camp.
