Coding & Cupcakes | April | Website Development 2: CSS
Join us for our monthly coding series, Coding & Cupcakes. Parents and daughters are invited to attend sessions to learn about code and bond while working on programming projects together. Our mission is to get girls excited about code at a young age and to dispel any notion that coding isn't for girls. Did we mention there are cupcakes, yummy, yummy, cupcakes!
In this workshop attendees will learn the basics of website development using various tools and languages: Chrome, Github, CodeSandbox, and CSS. This is part 2 of a 3 part workshop. Each workshop will have a particular learning focus. It is not necessary to attend in a particular order or to attend all the workshops. Each workshop is self-contained and over the course of all 3 workshops your daughter will change text, images, fonts and colors on her own website and even deploy it.
Chrome is a cross-platform web browser developed by Google. Chrome contains a lot of helpful pre-built in tools for developers, called DevTools, they allow you to inspect the code and breakdown elements of the website you are viewing.
Github is a file or code sharing service that allows you to collaborate with different people. Github is a highly used software which is typically used for version control - it allows you to save changes you make to your code and go back to previous versions of your code.
CodeSandbox is an online code editor that helps you create web applications from beginning stages to publishing it so others can view it online. A code editor makes writing and reading code easier by differentiating the elements and routines so programmers can more easily look at their code. In this workshop CodeSandbox will be used to deploy our website – that will allow other people to view and interact with them online.
Feeling overwhelmed with too much technology going on or ‘computery’ lingo? Don’t worry! That is what this workshop is for!
There will be lots of guidance and support for those with little to no coding experience and everyone gets to move at their own pace. So parents bring your daughters and join the Coding & Cupcake fun!
