Details

In this special workshop we are going to see how we can build three landing pages from scratch with HTML and CSS without any library or framework (e.g. Bootstrap, Foundation, etc).

The workshop is going to be based off these notes: https://github.com/turnintocoders/ws-landing-page

These are the three landing pages that we'll see:
- app download page http://turnintocoders.github.io/ws-landing-page/landing_app
- tribute page with form to subscribe http://turnintocoders.github.io/ws-landing-page/landing_form
- full bleed responsive background video and picture http://turnintocoders.github.io/ws-landing-page/landing_snow

We won't start from zero knowledge, but we'll try to cover most of the basics.

If you can, I highly encourage you to have a look at the sections Basic HTML and Basic CSS on FreeCodeCamp: https://learn.freecodecamp.org/

------------------------ the usual format follows ------------------------

We learn programming together, also starting from zero.

Turn into Coders organizes Coding for everyone, a gentle introduction to coding in JavaScript or Python, open to whoever wants to learn how to program, also starting from zero.

It's not a theory lesson: we work together in pairs. Bring your laptop if you can. But if you don't have a one, don't worry. We encourage people to work in pairs and anyway we always have a couple of spares.

The group is based on cooperative learning between peers. There is always someone experienced proposing study materials or helping out. Don't expect a lesson though, we are all learning collaborating in front of a computer.

--- JAVASCRIPT ---
We recommend Free Code Camp (https://www.freecodecamp.com) for who is getting started. Instead for who wants to get better in JS we recommend to solve and create katas on Codewars (http://codewars.com/).

--- PYTHON ---
If you are interested in Python you can join too! The kind folks of Python Italia (http://associazione.python.it/) are helping out during the events. We have a list of recommendations (most links are in Italian, but we welcome everyone: https://pythonitalia.github.io/python-abc/). English speakers can start here: https://learnpythonthehardway.org/python3/

--- PROJECTS ---
You can also join to work on your web project or to learn other programming languages, you'll surely find good company.

--- LINKS ---
The project is based on an idea of Founders & Coders (https://foundersandcoders.com/).

Our website is http://www.turnintocoders.com - and we have a super duper newsletter, subscribe!

Check the support material for the meetup (https://github.com/turnintocoders/codingforeveryone/blob/master/meetup-support.md).

All the recommended materials are the prerequisites for our bootcamp (http://www.turnintocoders.it/en/bootcamp.html), an intensive programme to become web developer.
