I am SO excited to announce that I will be teaching the Intro to HTML + CSS class for Girl Develop It Atlanta starting in February! It has been a dream of mine to have the opportunity to teach a class, and now I am finally putting in the work and making it happen. Expect lots of travel photos in the slides and come ready to code! This is a four-part class that meets once a week from 7pm-9pm at eHire in Buckhead starting February 21. The whole course is $90, and you walk away with a website and a team of other women supporting you. We DO have scholarships available, and we want everyone that wants to take the class to be able to, so please sign up for those if you need!
How to prepare for this class:
- Make sure you have a laptop that works. (Slow is fine, dead is not.)
- Make sure you have a power cord to that laptop. (I recommend fully charging the laptop before class just in case.)
- Download Sublime Text editor. (It’s free and a great text editor to have for your first line of code!)
- Follow Girl Develop It on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook and make sure you introduce yourself.
- Do a little research. (This is not necessary as we will walk you through everything you need to know, but it is helpful to know a little of the lingo before you walk in.)
How to do a little research:
- Find out what HTML + CSS stands for.
- Find out how they interact to create beautiful websites.
- If you are a learn by doing type of person, try the free tutorial on Codecademy. Other free tutorials that I enjoyed before I took this class, include Skillcrush’s ten day tech bootcamp, Team Treehouse free tutorials, and Code School’s Front End Foundations course.
Again, You do NOT need to know anything or do any of this before you get to class. We will teach you all of this, it is just in case you want to dip your toes in. If you have any concerns or questions at all, please please message me through Girl Develop It’s Instagram, or write me an email.
I hope you join me and the team on this journey to learn tech, and even if you don’t want a full-on tech career, these are the languages that play a huge role in our everyday lives, it would be a great hobby and self development tool!
See you soon,
