Kicking off with a not-so-digital look at code, Day 1 focused on HTML & CSS
Over the weekend, we set out to learn programming essentials by re-creating a responsive “todo” web app. On Saturday, we tackled front-end coding with HTML and CSS. First laying out the bones of the page with HTML, we moved on to styling with CSS in the afternoon.
More than just a class
With such a jammed-pack weekend, it can be hard to find time to get a bite to eat. We’ve got our Programming 101 students covered! Settling in with muffins and coffee in the morning followed by some solid brain food at lunchtime, we’re not just feeding your curiosity.
Our team of assistants was available on the sidelines to straighten out issues during instruction. Whether tripped up on an exercise or curious to learn more at the end of the lesson, the crew was ready to help.
Join us for an immersive weekend to learn what coding is all about. Learn the basics and get special Bitmaker discounts.
Practice, Sleep, Repeat
All weekend, Mina emphasized the need for practice, practice, practice. Coding is like a muscle. You have to exercise it to maintain and strengthen it.
Just ask Abby Greenbloom (@Agreenbloom), a Bitmaker full-time Web Development alumna who assisted our lead instructors on the weekend.
Once again, we’d like to extend a big thanks to everyone who attended! Also, thank you Mina, Betty, Michael, and Abby for dedicating their weekend to helping our students.
