Details

Join us for a Galentine's day celebration and HTML/CSS workshop! In this workshop, we will create a virtual Galentine's day card using HTML and CSS. This event is intended for beginners and all skill levels are welcome.

Our Galentine's day get together will be hosted by Excella! We hope you can join us for dinner, cupcakes, mimosas, prizes and a beginner-level HTML/CSS workshop.

By the end of this event, you will leave with foundational knowledge of HTML/CSS and have a working project to take home! The event will also provide a space for networking with other women in the DC tech community.

We welcome devs of all levels and encourage those with more experience to help out those that are just starting. There's always at least one mentor or leader present to help you with best practices or to guide you through if you are stuck with a nasty problem!

Laptops
The event is intended to teach attendees to code by doing. In order to maximize your benefits from this workshop, we encourage you to bring your laptop. You're more than welcome to join us without a laptop. Extra computers will not be available.

Food
Arlington Tech eXchange (Excella Consulting) will be providing pizza for this event.
