PhD+: Coding for Humanists


December 4, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Stevenson Fireside Lounge | Free

Part of the PhD+ Workshop Series, Sponsored by the IHR

Interested in coding, but not sure where to start? Fabiola Hanna, a new media artist and PhD Candidate in the department of Film and Digital Media, will walk us through the basics of coding for the web. We will explore HTML, CSS, and (time permitting) Java Script by remixing existing website code. Think deconstruction as a way of learning how websites are built and how code processes work. This introduction will not make you into expert coders – but it will provide you with insight into coding that you can apply to customize existing sites and work within easy-to-use platforms (like WordPress, Drupal). You will also gain an understanding of next steps so you can continue developing your coding skills.

Join us for this introductory workshop. No previous experience with coding necessary.
Be sure to bring a LAPTOP (not a tablet). Before the workshop: Download the Firefox Browser.
