Friday May 1 we held our launch party. A lot people showed up to welcome Astro Code School to Durham and learn about what we do. I had a great time telling our story to guests. Plus it was fun to meet Mayor Bell!
As a resident of the City of Durham I love working Downtown. It's close to where I live, convenient to a lot of great food and drink, and a great place to run into cool people all the time. I feel as if I'm part of something really awesome at a cool time in Durham history.
Astro's mission to educate people really fits well with a community who's committed to serving others. I first learned about this awesome attribute of Durhamites from friends who work at local non-profits. Inspired by them I joined AmeriCorp in 2004 as a technology VISTA at the Durham Literacy Center. This experience gave me quite an education and was a big influence on me.
A giant thanks to all the people at Caktus Consulting Group who helped organized the event. Without them it wouldn’t have been possible.
We’re right downtown Durham at 108 Morris Street. I hope that when you have a moment you'll stop in and say hi.
