The Westlake Accessible Programming Club, or simply APC, is an in-school venture to help explain basic logical concepts in a way that tailors to students’ individual learning styles. With three skilled mentors secured for the club, (Joseph Jin, Eli Bradley, and Sam Hollenbeck,) whose games and utilities have already managed to pass Apple’s strict App Review process, we think exploration of the concepts that power everything from server to front-end will be easier than ever. Also, we aim to recruit the best of our members into the board for our app publisher, the ‘API Abusers.’
Meetings will happen in Mr. Rosier's room (276) at 4:15 PM on Thursdays, and may last for about an hour. We encourage you to come and see what's up! However, the meetings are always voluntary for students. We can always message you the meeting summaries, and in fact, most work gets done elsewhere! Whatever schedule complications you have, we're willing to adapt to them.
NOTE: During the summer, meetings usually occur on Sundays, but the time and place is always subject to change. Please check our Slack to see when we schedule our meetings.

All Eanes ISD students are eligible to participate! Contact Eli Bradley, Joseph Jin, or Lynn Rosier for more information on signing up. If you just can't wait, you can start today by signing up for our Slack group to shadow our light-hearted development talk, or cloning our GitHub projects. We'd be delighted to have extra members, however inexperienced!
As a software development club, we're actively involved in the open source community!

External Funding Statement
The only external funding as of this time comes from Joseph Jin’s reserves, to maintain and renew the Apple Developer account we publish our apps under. We will never monetize published applications, through ads, in-app purchases, outright fees, or any other method. We reserve the right to accept external donations, or to crowdfund when we do require extra monetary resources.
