Rails Girls 2017


Over the weekend I had the joy of mentoring at this year's Rails Girls, which is a workshop aimed at getting more women into IT by teaching them the basics of Ruby on Rails.


This year I was asked to give the intro into HTML, CSS, and JS - while it might have seemed like an information overload the purpose of which was to demonstrate that great things can be accomplished from a few lines of code.

I've deployed my presentation on Github pages but it's lacking in notes...

tldr; HTML is structure, CSS is the style, JS is the interactivity - during the presentation I continued with a metaphor of a house, where the HTML was the physical construction, the CSS being the paint/finishing, and JS the light switches and swinging doors.
