Code 101: Explore Software Development
Students will understand how HTML and CSS programming languages work together to render the modern web, given an explanation and deconstruction of a popular website. They will code a simple HTML website, given a pre-existing mockup, instructor guidance, and coding snippets, to easily see the results of their coding work. They will also collaborate with other students, given a facilitated whiteboarding activity, in order to understand the dynamics of being a developer in a professional work environment. Furthermore, they will deploy a website and be able to share their workshop accomplishments with their friends and family. Finally, they will identify whether a career in coding is right for them, given their experience throughout the workshop and their impressions gained from listening to instructors and TAs share their stories.
