Here are some upcoming events that we're involved with:
Join other GDI students who are learning to code. All levels are welcome, so whether you’re just getting started with your first coding class or whether you’ve got the basics down and are moving into intermediate or advanced territory, you’re welcome to attend! Beginners are especially encouraged to attend and participate in study groups – it will really help you to grasp new concepts and push your skills to the next level.
GDI Study Groups are relaxed and informal, and are intended as a way for our community to work and play together while providing each other with ongoing support and feedback. Hang out with like-minded students for an evening. This is not a hackathon or an advanced meetup – this is a relaxed place for all of our students to spend time coding together. We’re very friendly and would love to have you join us!
Do you want to learn to put together a website starting from a design? Have you taken an HTML/CSS class or dabbled with HTML and CSS on your own? It’s time to apply your skills by building a webpage from start to finish!
The best way to practice and build your HTML and CSS skills is by jumping in and just doing it from soup to nuts in a supportive environment where you can ask questions and get direction from your team members and TAs. Join us in a group setting and learn how to slice a design – i.e. create a site from a design file we will provide. The main purpose of this workshop is to provide you with assisted work time focused around a common, simulated but realistic project to reinforce and build your skills. You will learn the process of breaking down a mockup, the best practices in getting started, and you will gain experience constructing the main elements of a web page. Experienced TAs will be there to get you started and help you out along every step of the way.
Want to learn how to code, but not sure where to start? Tired of techies throwing around acronyms that make your head spin?
If you are a complete beginner to coding and/or want to learn how to communicate better with your technical team and friends, this workshop is for you. This class is also great for UX professionals, project managers, small business owners, designers, and anyone who wants to understand how the web works.
