Ever wanted to create your own website or online game? Book your place at the two FREE coding workshops during the October School Holidays.

Workshop One:

Building with jQuery – 1Oct, 9.30am-3.30pm, Wellington Central Library (Mezzanine Meeting Room)
For people with little or no previous experience with JavaScript, but confidence in HTML and CSS, this workshop introduces attendees to what’s possible with jQuery: from hand-coding using jQuery’s convenient collection of functions, to using complex plugins written by other jQuery developers.

Requirements:
-Confidence with writing HTML and CSS
-Familiarity with copying, renaming and moving files
-A Mac or Windows computer with Internet access
-Admin rights to install new applications
-Excitement about learning jQuery!

Attendees leave the workshop at the end of the day with their work published online as a live website.

This workshop is free, and open to those aged 10-18yrs old (and any teachers that want to learn also!). Places are limited, registrations are essential. Go to gathergather.co.nz for more info and to register

 

Workshop two:

Building with Python – 2Oct, 9.30am – 3.30pm, Wellington Central Library (Mezzanine Meeting Room)
A great option for beginners with little or no prior programming experience, Building with Python offers a broad taster of the language, while providing a solid basis for more advanced programming.

Requirements:
-Familiarity with copying, renaming and moving files
-A Mac or Windows computer with internet access
-Python 3 pre-installed (from Python.org)
-Excitement about learning to code!

Attendees leave the workshop at the end of the day with a simple text-based game of their own creation.

This workshop is free, and open to those aged 13-18yrs old (and any teachers who want to learn also!). Places are limited, registrations are essential. Go to gathergather.co.nz  for more info and to register.

    We missed out on this chance. Is there another workshop ccming up?

  2. Adrienne says:

    Hi,
    Sorry you missed out! It’s highly likely that we’ll be running these again. All the past ones have been in the school holidays, so keep an eye out for them over Summer or in the April holidays next year.
    Thanks,
    Adrienne
