Event Details

What is #ladieslearningcode?

We're a group of women in Toronto who provide women and their friends the opportunity to learn basic, beginner-friendly computer programming skills through hands-on workshops. We're all about showing people that learning to hack can be fun!

Our goal is to make our workshops accessible to everyone. If you are a student and or if this is beyond your means, please get in touch with us. We have a limited number of scholarships available. Your request and information will be kept completely confidential.

*Workshops are open to women and their friends. Men are absolutely welcome, BUT each man must come as the guest of a lady.

Special thanks to The Centre for Social Innovation for providing the venue.

Why JavaScript?
JavaScript is simple but powerful. It is the backbone to all those nifty animations you see on websites and it powers many modern day web applications, including Gmail, Google Maps, and Facebook (to only name 0.00001% of the sites that use JavaScript!)

JavaScript can be easy for even absolute beginners to grasp but has powerful language constructs that can be used down the road. With JavaScript, getting started is super simple, since all you need is a web browser and a program like Notepad. No need to worry about installing interpreters, compilers, or any of that mumbo jumbo.

The #ladieslearningcode Introduction to JavaScript workshop is designed to be a hands-on experience. During the session, you’ll learn:

  • basic programming techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages
  • the basic building blocks of how HTML, CSS, and JavaScript work together to create richer online experiences
  • how to incorporate JavaScript into a pre-built webpage to create a snazzy photo carousel
  • what resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home (and we think you will)

Is this workshop for you?
This workshop has been designed for absolute beginners. If you know absolutely nothing about coding or computer programming, you’ve come to the right place! Our only expectation is that you know how to open up a web browser and do something online like checking your email. (But if you’re reading this, we’re pretty sure you know how to do that.)

Web designers who already have knowledge of HTML and CSS, but have had minimal exposure to writing their own JavaScript will find value in this workshop. It will help you to diversify your knowledge base and explore new areas.

Requirements:
You must own or have access to a laptop with wi-fi for which you have administrative permissions. Workshops are taught in English.

Please be sure to bring your powercord.
