Event description

Description

This free workshop is designed for lawyers of all ages and academic backgrounds who are curious about coding, but have no prior experience. Through a series of hands-on exercises in Ruby (a powerful but beginner-friendly language), we'll introduce you to programming fundamentals that have surprising parallels in law. No STEM degree required!

You'll learn:

  • Basic Internet architecture
  • Strings
  • Arrays
  • Conditional statements
  • Operators
  • Loops
  • Methods
  • Clean code principles

    Already lost? Intimidated? Perfect — This workshop is for you.

    Things you'll need:

    • Laptop with charger (Mac, Windows or Linux)
    • Chrome web browser
    • Pen and paper (optional but recommended)
    • Insatiable thirst for knowledge

    Space is limited, so RSVP as soon as possible.

    Presented by the Miami chapter of Legal Hackers in partnership with Code for Miami and CodeCounsel.co. Together, we're on a mission to raise tech literacy in the legal profession.


    FAQs

    In which room will the workshop be held?

    We'll be on the sixth floor, in the Amazon Conference Room (near the elevators).

    Can I bring a smartphone or tablet instead of a laptop?

    No. You can't code on a mobile device.

    What are my parking options at the event?

    The building has a large gated parking lot. Parking is validated for free on Monday evenings after 7pm.

    What is Legal Hackers?

    We are a global movement of lawyers, policymakers, designers, programmers, and academics who explore and develop creative solutions to some of the most pressing issues at the intersection of law and technology.
