Raise your nerd quotient! Learn to code!

A bunch of nerds

Lately, my nerd level has felt at low ebb. I’ve yet to find a RPG game to replace my last obsession, and I’ve finally caught up with all the comics I missed while I was out of the country. I found myself wondering: what new activity can I take up which I will have difficulty explaining to my beautiful and surprisingly patient wife?

So I’ve decided to learn JavaScript.

There are fantastic resources online for those who want to learn how to code: I’ve started at Codecademy, which provides a series of self-paced, online tutorials on JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. It’s gamified, meaning that you can earn points and badges for completing lessons and projects, brag about it on Facebook or Twitter, and you can compete against friends, should you have any.

So you want to be a web designer?

Do you have a website you'd like to be able to tweek and personalize? What about a blog that has so much potential if you could just break thru the limitations of the host site? Or do you just want to learn a little bit about web design? Come down to the Central library for our class series on HTML and CSS, you'll be surprised what you can do!

We have a three part series on HTML and CSS occurring over the next three weeks.

Monday, April 16, 5:30 - 7:30p: Learn what HTML is and how to format text, insert images, and create links in HTML.

Monday, April 23, 5:30 - 7:30p: Learn what CSS is, how it relates to HTML, and start styling backgrounds, texts and fonts.
