Cape Town – We recently held the first Womandla Basic Coding Workshop at American Corner. The coding workshop was aimed at giving the attendees a basic introduction to coding in HTML and CSS.
The attendees learnt the common HTML tags used to structure HTML pages, the skeleton of all websites. They also learnt many aspects of styling web pages, edit text and colors, images and creating attractive layouts. The attendees created a miniature site applying the knowledge they learnt in the session.
We also had some inspirational facilitators sharing their stories on how they got into the world of coding. They attended to all questions and queries throughout the session.
They used real life examples to explain why things are done the way they are. “We use divs to put things into their own separate places like we keep pots and pans in the kitchen and clothes in the wardrobe in the bedroom. We can put them everywhere or anywhere but you would end up with a messy house.” This was one of the analogies that actually helped the attendees to better understand the coding process.
Womandla will be hosting more coding workshops starting next year on Saturdays, also with a certificate of completion at the end of the program.
