Women's Community of Code: Introduction to Web Programming

Title: Women's Community of Code: Introduction to Web Programming

Location: Northeastern University, 440 Huntington Avenue, West Village H, 2nd Floor, Room #210, Boston, Massachusetts 02115


Learn to program web pages with Women's Community of Code!  At this hands-on workshop, we'll learn how to make a web site slick and interactive with the building blocks of the web: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

If you've put together a web site or blog before, this workshop is for you!  You probably know how to use templates and plug-ins to make your web pages do all kinds of fancy things.  This workshop is about what's under the hood: how the web and internet work, and the code that powers those plug-ins.  You can apply the coding skills we'll learn to almost any web site.

If you've NEVER put together a web site or blog before, this workshop is for you, too!  Our workshops are beginner-friendly and you don't need any technical knowledge to get started with coding.

About Women's Community of Code

Women's Community of Code is a collaboration between Dr. Laney Strange of Tufts University and Dr. Ben Hescott of Northeastern University.  Laney and Ben are computer science professors strongly committed to making computer science accessible to everyone.  This will be our debut Women's Community of Code workshop, and we're excited to bring coding to women in the Boston area!

At these workshops, Laney and Ben conduct a fun a interactive learning experience that includes an introduction to computer programming, hands-on coding assignments, and usually a pretty awesome project you can keep working on forever, as computer scientists tend to do.

Women's Community of Code is open to all women over age 18.  Our workshops are beginner friendly and free to participate.  We heartily welcome questions, comments, and feedback: reach out to laney@cs.tufts.edu, (415) 559-2759 with any of the above.
