The Prototyping Demo

Before developers start coding a website, they first make a prototype or design on which they base their product. A free and easy tool to use for this is Figma. Your teacher Avalon will show you how to use Figma and create a great design together with you for our landing page.

The Landing Page Workshop

In this workshop, we’ll be focusing on coding your own landing page from scratch and understanding the important concepts of HTML and CSS.

What you’ll learn:

• What a basic HTML template is and how to generate one in 2 seconds


• How to link the CSS to the HTML and add design to your page


• How to use popular libraries like Google Fonts and Font Awesome, saving time when designing

You’ll then head home with your very own landing page that you’ve coded yourself! Your coding teacher, Ellyn, will be guiding you through new concepts in just 3 hours, instead of days or weeks. It’s the perfect taster to try a new experience in tech, or to just have some fun. Our only requirement from you is that you are eager to learn.

Coding prerequisites:

None, this is a workshop for beginners!
