While the first chapters already celebrate the new year, we want to hold in for a second and take a look back onto the year 2013 for +OpenTechSchool.  And what a year it has been!
<p>2013. The first full-year after it all began in April of 2012. And what a year it has been – a truly great one for OpenTechSchool. Let’s take a short look back on what has happened this year and a small peak into the future at what is yet to come – which promises to be at least as exciting, if not more so.</p>

We are happy to announce that pledges made to the +Hackership  crowdfunding campaign indeed are tax-deductible donations under german law. We can and will issue donation receipts for them – saving you taxes.

But in order for this to accounted for 2013, donations need to happen in that fiscal year. Or to put it into other ways: today latest. So, quick, go save some taxes by donating!

Story
Tagline
You have a tech workshop you'd like to coach? We'll help you set it up.
Introduction
OpenTechSchool is a community initiative to provide programming and other tech-related workshops to women and their friends. We take care of the organizational side of things (venues, press, finding participants) and let our volunteer coaches to create the curriculum according to their vision. Our main goal is to create a friendly and safe learning environment where no one feels shy about asking any question. Everyone, no matter what their gender, skill level or experience, is invited to participate, whether as a coach or a learner. OTS is an idea we would be very happy to see spread across the globe!
