NextGen Camp provides an equal opportunity environment for youth to learn from tech professionals. Open-source technologies remove the financial barriers that prevent youth from expanding and discovering their technical talents. During NextGen Camp, kids will have the opportunity to work in teams, get hands-on training and ask questions professionals from various open-source communities. The entire camp is free. This is an opportunity you do not want to miss.
