What to Bring
Bring your fully-charged laptop & charging cable: Windows, Mac, Chromebook, Linux operating systems work great. Tablets will not work. Regardless of the kind of laptop used, it must have the ability to plugin a USB “type A” plug (type 2.0 or 3.0) - - these are the most common type of USB plugs and it’s how the Makey Makey is connected to a computer. Some new laptops don’t accept a USB type A plug so the user must supply their own adaptor (“dongle”).
NOTE: If you're using a school issued laptop make sure you're able to access the internet outside of school. Make sure you can access all websites (like youtube). Sometimes school-issued laptops are "locked down" or have some kind of restriction placed on them.
You will have the option to choose to pay by credit card or pay by invoice. If you select “pay by invoice” an invoice will be emailed to the buyer to remit payment upon receipt. Payment must be received prior to the date of the event, do not bring payment to the event.
Changes to Registration
You have until two weeks prior to your workshop to make any changes to your registration. If you are unable to attend, you may transfer your registration to another participant. Refunds are only offered if the session does not meet the minimum of 20 participants.
