Join us for our upcoming event in Jersey City: Women, Wine & Web Design! 

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.

The Workshop: Plan Your Page

Create a Structure for Your ‘About Me’ Page

Before you build your page, it’s important to know what you want to build and how your elements relate. We’ll work together to build individual plans for your personal page.

Dive into Page Build

We’ll use Glitch as a framework for building your page allowing you to see your creation as you go.

You’ll be implementing basic coding principles and lightly styling your page to get it the look and feel you desire.
