HOW DOES IT WORK?
You will build an online game using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (jQuery). Through a combination of bite-size theory and continuous practice, you will be guided towards a minimal viable product (MVP) game. From there, you will have individual time to take the MVP and make it your own by customizing and/or adding to the code. After this, you will learn how to put your game online so that you can share it and play it with friends and family!

What you'll learn.

Learn to build an online game during our beginner workshop, where we teach you about HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Bring your own laptop, that’s all you need.

HTML and CSS

HTML is the most basic building block of the Web and it defines the meaning and structure of web content. Any website you've ever visited was made with html and each new version of HTML is adapted to the new requirements of the web. CSS is a stylesheet language that describes the presentation of an HTML document. It basically tells your HTML elements how they should look like (colors, backgrounds, fonts, orientation, etc.).

JavaScript (JQuery)

If HTML and CSS define how an application looks, JavaScript defines its behaviour. After getting introduced to concepts such as objects, properties, and variables, you'll dive straight into JQuery, a very popular JavaScript library. JQuery still plays a big part in the JavaScript ecosystem and we chose it because it's a relatively easy way to get introduced to web programming and compared to pure JavaScript, it simplifies a lot.
