This year we are back at the Walnut Creek library with a three-day coding workshop.
Part how-to, part fun-learning, this hands-on workshop designed by three girls who Design, Code and Deploy in the real world, is an invitation to the wonderful world of software development.
Targeted to kids, from 9 to 15 years old, who may have never looked at the code behind their favorite website, have or wish they had a blog, have coded, or are just interested in understanding the buzz, this workshop, has them itching to create their own website and learn how to make the world a better place.
Day 1: Overview of software development cycle, with interactive activities to define goals, design flow-diagrams, and site architecture.
Day 2: Hands-on activities to build website, using free online software with templates and ad hoc HTML/CSS training.
Day 3: Pairing activity to test each others’ product, ending with individual presentations.
The kids finished and presented their websites, surprising everyone with their talents. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the wonderful kids!
