IIT Alumni of Greater Houston (IITAGH) is partnering with the Fort Bend Global Studies Academy (GSA) to host “A Day of Coding Workshop” at Clements High School on Saturday, November 1, 2014 from 9 am to 12 noon.

A Day of Coding Workshop

In JavaScript and HTML

Students will be able to understand basic concepts of declarative vs procedural languages with JavaScript and HTML used to explain the difference. The final outcome will be a simple website designed from scratch which can be further developed by the students after the workshop is complete. Students will get hands on experience to develop a website on a local computer which will then be made live.

Requirements: No prior coding experience needed, bring a notepad and a pen to write notes, a USB flash drive to store your work, and an email ID ready to be used.
