Created by Tech Elevator, Women, Wine, & Web Design is a beginner workshop to learn the fundamental tools of front-end web development (HTML & CSS) and have fun. By the end of the session, each attendee will have created a personal web page to call their very own. This event was created to inspire attendees to take a first step in understanding basic web code and exploring their own tech creativity while also bringing together community partners to grow interest in quality, in-demand technology opportunities in the region. The event is designed to encourage women to explore coding, but the event is open to all allies.
