Welcome to the nanonet!
The nanonet is a tiny, self-contained, battery-operated web server and file repository running on a $35 computer system the size of a deck of cards. It was created by Liberating Software using the open source PirateBox project as a foundation as an example of some of the things that you can do if you learn to code.
Liberating Software, as part of Computer Science Education Week 2014 and in collaboration with Code.org, is hosting "The Hour of Code" the week of December 8th through the 14th. Our hours that week will be from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm, Monday through Friday, 10:00 am to 8:00 pm Saturday, and we'll be holding our Open House from noon until 5:00 pm on Sunday. Please join us!
Starting in January 2015, we'll be offering full classes in
- Scratch and Blockly programming, for children 7 to 11 — Learn more
- Programming in Processing, for anyone 12 and older — Learn more
- Introduction to Arduino — Making the Internet of Things — Learn more
