Description



Why learn JavaScript?

This workshop will focus on teaching the fundamentals of computer programming in a visual context, and highlight how simple mathematical equations can create beautiful and engaging outcomes. (You don't need to be a math wizard - Processing does the calculating for us!)

We'll use p5.js, which is a processing 'flavour' that builds upon the JavaScript programming language, and is often used in electronic arts, new media art, and visual design. The application itself allows anyone to code in something called a Sketchbook, where programs can be saved and previewed instantly. Learners will use geometrical shapes and lines to create interactivity with their mouse and keyboard, and use colours to create visually intricate designs!

Prerequisites:

None! This workshop is designed for beginners.

About Our Ladies Learning Code Program

Our Ladies Learning Code program offers women, men, transgender and beyond gender binary adults hands-on, project-based learning experiences that are designed to give beginners the skills and confidence they need to become digital creators. Ladies Learning Code programs tackle the tech gender gap one positive, empowering learning experience at a time.

Our workshops, courses and meetups are open to adults of all ages and genders but are designed to be a space where women explicitly are welcome to learn. Workshops cover everything from introductory HTML & CSS, to WordPress, Python, Ruby, artificial intelligence, web design and more. They are especially popular and successful because of our high ratio (4:1 in most programs!) of learners to mentors at every experience, which is only possible because of overwhelming support from the communities in which we operate.

What's Included

  • 4:1 student-to-mentor ratio with an awesome lead instructor!
  • Great venue with a fun, social and inclusive learning environment
  • No need to bring a laptop; laptops will be provided!
