Welcome to the Github and Website Workshop — an afternoon session designed to introduce cis and trans female students and non binary students to Github, git, HTML, and CSS, with the goal of creating a simple website hosted on Github.
This next offering of this workshop will be on Saturday March 7th, 2015 at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. This pages includes links to the curriculum we used so thats other can build on and learn from our curriculum.
There are limited spots available! Please fill out the following form by February 28th. We will let you know if you've been selected by March 3rd.
The workshop will be interactive and will involve you working on your own and on your own laptop. Everybody attending should bring a laptop and a power cord so that they don't run out of battery.
We will spend five hours working through self-guided content, discussing core concepts as a group. Mentors will be available to answer questions and help you work through the exercises.
