Virtual Event: How Websites Work
Tuesday December 7 @ 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
At this event led by volunteers from the Society of Women Engineers, you will learn the basics of how websites work.
This will cover the basics of server-side and client-side code, the purposes of different computer coding languages, and how they work together to create the websites we know and love. Then you will have a chance to learn how to use developer tools in a Chrome browser to modify the client-side code of a website to alter the way it appears on your computer. At the end, you will leave with resources to help you further explore the different coding languages that were introduced! No coding experience is necessary!
Facilitators: Sahara Becker (Tech Support Manager at McMaster-Carr, Society of Women Engineers SWENext Programs Committee Chair Elect) and Michael Cha (Data Scientist, John Deere)
