Are you looking to level up your skills? Or just trying to figure out where to start? Come to Open Lab! We sometimes have a bit of organized programming, but it’s mostly meant to be a place where you can work on self-paced tutorials and exercises, or maybe get together with a friend to work on a project. Or heck, even your data or coding homework
Why work on your project at Open Lab instead of in your dorm or apartment?
Help us build this resource: if you try things here, let us know if you like or hate them. If you find other things you think should be here, let us know!
While many links in this guide are to things on the open web, a few are to resources Northwestern subscribes to. We recommend that you set up your access to these right away, both to be ready if we link to things in them, and also because there will be a lot more in them that could be great but we just haven’t found yet!
