We’ll kick off the year with a hands-on working session where we’ll work together on our own projects or tutorials. Come in curious about a subject or looking to make progress on a project you’re working on! We’ll divide ourselves into groups who’ll be working on similar topics, and we’ll have prompts and tutorials at hand for those who don’t have a particular project in mind.
