Have you been wanting to carve out some time to practice your HTML/CSS or JavaScript skills, but not sure what to do or where to start? Come out to PairUp Programming and practice coding with the help of a fellow GDI student at your skill level!

For 2 hours you’ll be paired up with a random person to hack on a small project designed to give you some great practice coding in HTML/CSS or Javascript.

There will be three group levels: Level 1 - HTML/CSS, Level 2 -Basic Javascript, and Level 3 - Advanced Javascript.

We’ll have a list of project ideas available for you to pick from (you can check them out at )

The agenda for the night:

6:30pm: Register and get a sticker for your level.

7:00pm: Event starts - Decide what project to work on, using our recommended list or by brainstorming ideas with your partner. Hack on your projects together for the next 2 hours.

9:00pm: Event ends.


Please bring a laptop to work on with the following installed:

- A text editor such as Sublime Text 3

- A web browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox

- Also a notebook or sketchbook may be handy for brainstorming ideas with your partner.
