Workshop Description:

MiniBarLabs is launching ‘CodeMaker’, a one-day coding course held in the swish surrounds of Mother London. ‘CodeMaker’ is designed to enable a deeper understanding of how digital products are constructed and how they function by learning the fundamentals of coding. Participants will be introduced to the core technologies that drive the internet and mobile apps, increasing their comprehension and expanding their tech vocabulary so that they can communicate more clearly with software developers, better scope out projects and make more informed choices when commissioning.

Topics to be covered will include:

  • A condensed history of computing and the web
  • Introduction to binary code 0100100001000101010011000100110001001111

  • How the modern web works – the technologies behind Twitter, Facebook and Google
  • How to make beautiful web sites with HTML and CSS
  • JavaSript and JQuery
  • Deconstruct your own web app (intro to Agile principles)
  • Make your own web app
