Professional Development

The Experience Programming in Quorum (EPIQ) conference is an international professional development workshop for educators to learn the foundational skills necessary to teach students computer science using the Quorum programming language. EPIQ was started in 2010 as part of a National Science Foundation funded project (CNS-0940521). EPIQ 2019 corresponds to the release of Quorum 7, which will introduce a new programming environment code named Quorum Studio. Besides Quorum Studio, we have a whole series of surprises planned for the 10th anniversary. Don’t miss out! Purchase tickets below on our Eventbrite page:


EPIQ 2019 will be held at the Washington State School for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Vancouver, WA. At the event, attendees (e.g., teachers, programmers) will learn about the field of computer science and programming using the Quorum programming language. Teachers attending EPIQ will additionally learn how to integrate computer science into their classrooms. The curriculum provided is modern, free, open source, and mapped to the Common Core and AP's Computer Science Principles standards.
