May 7 – 31, 2015: We will run a light weight version of this as the HillHacks CodeCamp in Dharamshala.
September 28: We will begin our regular routine near Bangalore. People join then or in early January. I ask people to stay at least three months.
Our primary focus is on yoga and achieving a right way of being. We maintain a healthy lifestyle on a farm in nature and practice a variety of yoga and movement techniques to cleanse our minds, develop our bodies and have a good time.
We are fortunate to be alive as the world shifts into the internet age. Part of our day is spent learning technical skills we can use to participate in that transformation. I encourage people to prepare for CodeForIndia Fellowships and shape the study portion of our day around that. In CodeForIndia Fellowships people get practical experience using and developing software to help real people. As community service we run the CodeForIndia Fellowship program as well as LearnToCode.Social an online community to help people learn technical skills.
There is no fee, though I encourage incoming students to make a donation of a laptop, projector, smart phone, wireless speaker, electric unicycle or SD card or USB key according to their ability.
Late September through March we invite CodeForIndia Fellows to live on the farm with us, share food and as they like participate in the yoga and movement activities.
