  3. Teams may use any coding language desired. Bringing your own tools is welcomed and encouraged, but must be used in a way that does not compromise the safety of others.

Playgrounds are an environment that encourage exploration, creativity and new connections. Unfortunately, these places become harder to find as we get older, yet, our need for them hasn’t diminished.

MonkeyBars is all about creating spaces to fill this void.
