Dip your toes into programming at Tech Elevator's learn to code Meetup. Each month we'll take a look at simple programming concepts that will be fun, informative, and give you a glimpse into the world of computer programming.

JULY MONTHLY TOPIC

A little HTML, a bit of CSS animation, and some JavaScript is all you need to build your very own Whack-a-Mole game. Why hunt down the nearest arcade, or carnival midway, when you can play from the comfort of your home, and for FREE? We'll look into CSS transitions and animation, the importance of randomness in games, and take a peek at SVG graphics. Get your digital mallets ready!

Be sure to bring your laptop computer and install the Chrome or Firefox Browser.
