We’re challenging 50 women and girls from around the world to learn how to code!
Women in Tech and UmaHub are offering a FREE CODING PROGRAMME with mentorship to 50 women and girls that are motivated and eager to learn the universal language of CODE.
16 July to 3 August 2018
Monday to Friday: 2 hours
Saturday: 5 hours for a Hackathon!
Online, from everywhere in the world.
What will I learn?
We’ll teach you the full skill set for creating a modern static website and putting it online for the world to see. If you follow the lessons properly, do the homework and participate on the hackathons – you will be able to take on small projects for clients and create beautiful and simple websites for them.
Introduction to HTML
The standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications.
Styling with CSS
The styling language that describes how page elements should be displayed on desktops, tablets, mobile devices or paper.
Responsive Web Design Principles
Nowadays most of the users access our websites on their mobile devices. It’s our job to make that a pleasant experience. Broken designs on smaller screens are not acceptible anymore.
The most popular HTML, CSS, and JS library in the world. Open source toolkit enabling you to build responsive, mobile-first projects in record time.
Git and Github
Git is not a trivial tool to learn, but it’s an indispensable one in every modern developer’s toolset. We’re going to learn the basic of the basics. Just enough so you can enjoy its benefits, without falling in its traps and the notorious #githell.
We’ll also set up our accounts on GitHub and start building our portfolios.
How the internet works
Servers, clients, domain names, shared hosting, dedicated servers, FTP. Fear not, very soon you will be fluent in this “language”.
You’ll learn how to choose a shared hosting, hook it up with your domain name and deploy your website, making it visible to the world.
Our partner UmaHub
This Summer Camp would not be possible if it wasn’t for the special energy of a special lady: Elena Kolevska. As soon as we started Women in Tech, Elena contacted me on LinkedIn and she wanted to know how she could help, what could we do together in order to take concrete actions.
As per magic the Summer Camp idea came up and a few weeks later, here we are, making it happen!
Thank you so much Elena for your inspiration and help!
