Cookies and Code

The club’s weekly Cookies and Code events are an opportunity to meet people, learn to code and, most importantly, share home made cookies.

ADI Labs

For coders and developers wanting to go further, ADI Labs meets every Friday, to create real applications, released each semester. Members work under the guidance of an experienced mentor, each of whom helps their team to achieve more than they thought possible.

Feel like you need a refresher, or are only getting started? Use ADI’s coding resources to work on your chops.
