Event description
Try Coding with the Turing School of Software & Design!

About this event

Turing School of Software & Design is excited to offer a virtual Try Coding workshop for all skill levels! In this two-hour workshop, you'll learn the basics of Front-End Engineering and leave with your very own code project.

Each class will be led by a Turing instructor in the virtual classroom who will guide you and other attendees through a structured curriculum where you will write code on your own and collaboratively with other students.

A Zoom link will automatically be sent when you 24 hours prior to the start of the workshop.

Workshop Overview

This 2-hour beginner-level class will dive into one part of Front-End development - the CSS language. Front-End developers focus on the user experience and visual interface of a website or application. CSS is the language that allows us to control the style and layout of a page.

In this workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of the CSS language - how to change the sizing and color of objects on a page. Then, you will learn how to write the code that animates elements on a page. Here is one example of a CSS animation: (https://codepen.io/nikhil8krishnan/details/PRZygW/)

Attendees should be comfortable with navigating the basic operations of a computer. You will be expected to use the following skills: typing, copying and pasting text, navigating the internet through a browser, and conversing via a video chat.


  • Online class on Monday, January 31 from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM MST

    Important Update: you will not be able to access our small group instruction and breakout rooms unless your Zoom is updated.

Additional information is located at the bottom of this page in the FAQ section.
