Our Online Community
Coding doesn’t have to be a solitary activity. At Wack Club, we make things together and in our Slack, you’ll find awesome people to hangout with too. Code together, find your programming community, or just hang out.
Occasionally we invite someone we really want to speak to (like Sal Khan, George Hotz, and Lady Ada) and host an AMA with them.
We build open source games and tools together
