Event Details

Coding & Cupcakes | November | Website Development Workshop

 

Join us for our monthly coding series, Coding & Cupcakes. Parents and daughters are invited to attend sessions to learn about code and bond while working on programming projects together. Our mission is to get girls excited about code at a young age and to dispel any notion that coding isn't for girls. Did we mention there are cupcakes, yummy, yummy, cupcakes!

 

 

In this workshop attendees will learn the basics of website development using various tools and languages: Chrome, Github, CodeSandbox, HTML, and CSS. Your daughter will change text, images, fonts and colors on her own website and even deploy it.

 

Chrome is a cross-platform web browser developed by Google. Chrome contains a lot of helpful pre-built in tools for developers, called DevTools, they allow you to inspect the code and breakdown elements of the website you are viewing.

  

Github is a file or code sharing service that allows you to collaborate with different people. Github is a highly used software which is typically used for version control - it allows you to save changes you make to your code and go back to previous versions of your code.

 

CodeSandbox is an online code editor that helps you create web applications from beginning stages to publishing it so others can view it online. A code editor makes writing and reading code easier by differentiating the elements and routines so programmers can more easily look at their code. In this workshop CodeSandbox will be used to deploy our website – that will allow other people to view and interact with them online.


HTML (HyperText Markup Language) is a markup language used to describe the structure and layout of a web page. HTML is used to describe the visual appearance of a document or web page to be displayed by an internet browser. HTML consists of elements and these elements tell the browser how to display the content. The elements are represented by tags and usually have opening and closing tags that surround and give meaning to the content. Tags label pieces of content to be displayed but browsers do not display the HTML tags, it only uses the tags to render the content of the page. (Please see HTML examples: Example 1. Example 2. Example 3.)

 

CSS (Cascading Style Sheets ) is the language used for describing the presentation of web pages, including colors, layouts, and fonts. It allows one to adapt the presentation to different types of devices, such as large screens, small screens or printers. CSS is independent of HTML and can be used with any XML-based markup language written.  In this workshop your daughter will learn how CSS is used to describe the style of an HTML document by telling those HTML elements how they should be displayed on the screen. CSS is a key technology of the World Wide Web, alongside HTML and JavaScript. (Ex: In this link : Scroll down to the CSS Demo and click on the different Stylesheet options in to see an example of CSS at work. Click Here for a different example of CSS code written inside an HTML document and how it looks when rendered.)

 

Feeling overwhelmed with too much technology going on or ‘computery’ lingo? Don’t worry! That is what this workshop is for! 

 

There will be lots of guidance and support for those with little to no coding experience and

everyone gets to move at their own pace. So parents bring your daughters and join the

How does registration work?

Register your daughter for one ticket, choose between bringing a laptop or having one provided for you at the event. Before checking out, you must also register for one parent/adult chaperone ticket.

 

If you are a chaperone and you'd like to bring several girls or attend the event with another parent/daughter pair, our form does accommodate that by allowing you to specify the quantity of daughter tickets and parent/adult chaperone tickets during registration.


Do you need financial assistance/a laptop to attend? 

Email us at kcwomenintech@gmail.com.

 

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? 

The minimum age requirement is the ability to use a mouse, as well as basic reading and computer typing skills. There is a worksheet provided for the parent/chaperone and daughter to work through, with mentors on hand to assist with the more complex topics.

  

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? 

VML&R is located in a terminal of the Charles B. Wheeler Airport in downtown Kansas City. There is ample parking in front.

Each girl should have one wi-fi enabled laptop, a power cord and mouse. Laptops can be provided if needed; just select that option during registration.

 

 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, we do paperless check-in at the event.
