Get nostalgic with Turing School of Software & Design as we go back in time and create a Lite-Brite app!

About this event

Turing School of Software & Design is excited to offer a virtual Try Coding workshop for all skill levels! In this three-hour workshop, you'll learn the basics of Front End Engineering and leave with your very own virtual Lite-Brite app! Not sure what a Lite-Brite is? Check out this video to get a refresher on the classic kids game from the '80s.

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 is a fun, beginner-level course in Front End Engineering. No experience is necessary. You'll get a taste of what a Front End developer does as they focus on the user experience and visual interface of a website or application.

In this workshop, we'll scratch the surface of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. And by the end of class, you'll have an interactive and colorful app to share with family and friends!

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 Saturday, July 2 from 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM MST
