In this seven-hour workshop, get your hands on the building blocks of the web: HTML, CSS & JavaScript, and use these to create a functioning, interactive website.

We’ll start by covering the basics of how the internet works — the front-end, back-end, and full-stack development. Then get right into using basic HTML to build the "bones" of a website like headers, paragraphs, and hyperlinks. Once your HTML is set, you’ll add some flare with basic CSS to adjust fonts, color, backgrounds, and more.

In the second half, we’ll move on to the fundamentals of JavaScript like variables and control flow, and practice writing JavaScript functions to handle user interactions and DOM manipulation. Not sure what DOM manipulation is? Don’t worry, we’ll cover that, too.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll have a foundation in the building blocks of the web to start creating simple, interactive websites, and take your coding skills to the next level in a short course or bootcamp.

Please Note: Registration for this workshop will close 48 hours before the scheduled start date.
