HTML and CSS are the backbone of all websites, and knowledge of them is a necessity if you are interested in things like web development, creating marketing emails, or even blogging! Join us on April 6 for the very first Ladies Learning Code Workshop held by the Halifax Chapter. This workshop has been designed for absolute beginners. If you know absolutely nothing about coding or computer programming but interested in getting your feet wet when it comes to programming, you’ve come to the right place!

During this session, you’ll learn:

• Basic techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages
• The building blocks of how HTML and CSS work together to create richer online experiences
• How to create a rich website with images, video, and a CSS-defined layout
• What resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home (and we think you will)

It’s easy to learn, and was designed so that everyone - even non-programmers - can do it. No fancy programs are needed, just Notepad and a web browser! You will expect to have your own laptop with Wi-Fi for which you have administrative permissions. Please be sure to bring your power cord as well. Men are welcome to attend workshops, but you are request to bring with you an additional female learner where possible.

Ladies Learning Code (WWW.LADIESLEARNINGCODE.COM) – A non-profit organization providing women and men the opportunity to learn beginner-friendly computer programming and other technical skills through hands-on workshops. They're all about showing people that learning to hack can be fun! Almost 2,000 women (and men) have participated in their workshops since August 2011, and after receiving many requests to offer workshops outside of Toronto, they've decided to finally go for it! This will be the first Ladies Learning Code Workshop held by the Halifax Chapter of the organization.
