You can find the “my first website” files here.
Sunday, January 18th, 10AM @ Bitmaker Labs
This month we kick objective based, multi-session workshops, aiming to welcome and challenge students across multiple sessions. Coders will work through a set of activity cards to the creation of ‘My First Website’.
Happy New Year, Thank You!
Happy New Year to all of the students, parents, mentors, workshop leaders, sponsors, and CoderDojoTo community members. Thank you for supporting CoderDojoTo in providing Toronto youth with a wide range of computing skills. Volunteers developed and presented workshops on graphic design, networking and HTML – we even built a rudimentary lighting rig with Arduino (watch the video).
Last year, with our awesome and generous Venue Sponsor Bitmaker Labs providing a great technical learning space, and our Title Sponsor Financeit facilitating events by providing TTC tokens, pizza and snacks, Arduino chips, and a few sodas for the volunteers at our appreciation nights. Our mentors presented a workshop to members of OLITA, and worked with Autism Ontario to create an environment for kids with autism to hang out and learn code.
