We had a great session last Wednesday night, we are starting to see some great websites pop up around the class. If you would like to review your code or catch up, download the following zip file of Sample Code from the session. We ran out of time last Wednesday, so this week we are continuing where we left off. If you have any questions from last week don’t be afraid to ask our mentors!!
Coding isn’t just for computer whizzes, says Mitch Resnick of MIT Media Lab — it’s for everyone. In a fun, demo-filled talk Resnick outlines the benefits of teaching kids to code, so they can do more than just “read” new technologies — but also create them.
At our first session at CoderDojo Dun Laoghaire we covered an introduction to HTML/CSS. Here’s a list of great online resources to help improve your coding skills and to help you tackle more advanced tasks.
Thanks to everyone for coming on our opening night – we had a great time and hope all you founder members did too, learned something and maybe got a taste for coding! Thanks too to all the parents and volunteers who got stuck in to make it all happen.
If you want to review the material we covered on the first night you can download it here Session1-html Material, you’ll find code samples, images and the presentation slides within.
Next week we’ll be doing a follow on session on HTML. You should then be able to make your own website so have a think what you might want it to be about.
After that, we really want to know what you want to do. We may do a different type of coding, split up into groups, some on HTML, some not, whatever works. We’re here to help you learn a new skill and, more importantly, build something cool – you get to decide what it is!
