What happens at Girl Code?
Our students work as a team to build a web application – an interactive website similar to TradeMe, Facebook or Tumblr. For the first three sessions, we teach them the foundational skills. After that, they take the lead in building the web application. They will come across the same challenges they would face at a real tech company, and learn what it is like to work in the software industry.
The tools we teach at Girl Code are the same tools used by top employers like TradeMe, Vend and Orion Health.
By the end of the course, students will know how to:
- Create a website using HTML and CSS
- Let your users chat and post content through Node.js
- Work together on the same code using Git
- Use Agile planning techniques to stay on track
- Release a project into the world!
