frequently asked questions

    Do participants need previous programming experience?

    No previous programming experience is needed. We will teach you the basics about hardware, software, and programming. If you already have extensive programming experience, this workshop may not be a good option for you.

    Where will the workshop take place?

    The workshop will be hosted at the newly opened science building (Regents Hall - Room 550) on the Georgetown University campus in Washington, DC.

    What is the best way to get to Georgetown University?

    The best way to get to Georgetown University is to take the Rosslyn Metro station (Orange and Blue Lines) or from the Dupont Circle Metro station (Red Line). The shuttle buses go directly from those metro stations to the Georgetown University campus. From there, it is a short walk to Regents Hall where the workshop will be held. (See the interactive map of the Georgetown University campus.)

    Driving to the Georgetown University campus is not recommended. Onstreet parking is scarce and restricted to two hours if you do not have a residential permit. The District of Columbia is vigilant about enforcing residential parking restrictions.

    Parking on campus is limited. The rate is currently $20 per day.

    Is there a list of transportation options?

    See the following page for information on the free Georgetown University Transportation Shuttle (GUTS) buses, public metro buses, directions to campus, and parking: Click here!!
