Come Join Us! It's Free!
Join us on September 23rd for a fun event that will mix kids, parents/guardians, technology and fun! As part of the Mozilla Summer Code Party, we're running a fun, hands-on, project-based Introduction to HTML & CSS workshop for kids and their parents/guardians. This workshop is designed for absolute beginners, so if you're not sure what HTML & CSS are, that's totally okay! We'll teach you.
This workshop is being led by two awesome Mozillians: Jon Buckley and Kate Hudson. But there will be lots of people around to help you. In fact, we're planning to have a 4-to-1 ratio of participants (kids and parents) to instructors.
Space is limited, so register today! Please note that this event is BYOL (bring your own laptop). Only one laptop is required per kid-parent pair. No special software is required (though, we suggest downloading Firefox or Chrome.) If you don't have a laptop that you can bring, please click here to request one and we will do our best to get you set up with one for the day!

Why HTML & CSS?
Digital literacy and webmaking skills are becoming increasingly important, for success both in school and in the workforce. But beyond that, webmaking is really fun! It's awesome to have an idea, and then - with just a couple lines of code - be able to turn your idea into something that can be viewed by others, anywhere in the world.
When it comes to webmaking, the two most important and foundational tools are HTML & CSS. Don't know what those are? Don't worry - we'll teach you! HTML and CSS are the backbone of all websites, and knowledge of them is a becoming a necessity for people interested in things like web development, creating marketing emails, or even blogging! The web without HTML and CSS would be would be a world without colourful, pretty websites, not to mention the web applications we all use daily. 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!
This workshop is designed for absolute beginners. Neither kids or parents/guardians need any experience at all with HTML & CSS in order to attend. So register above and come on our on September 23rd for this fun workshop, part of the Mozilla Summer Code Party!
