Event Description:
"Baby it's code outside..." so dig out your holiday sweater and charge your laptop. ICTAM invites you to create your own holiday card website while learning the basics in HTML and CSS with Canada Learning Code's Co-Founder and CEO Melissa Sariffodeen. 

Why learn HTML & CSS?
If you are looking to get your feet wet when it comes to programming, then this is the workshop for you. HTML and CSS are the backbone of all websites, and knowledge of them is a necessity if you are interested in things like web development, creating marketing emails, or even blogging! The web without HTML and CSS would be a world without colourful, pretty websites, not to mention the web applications we all use daily. It’s easy to learn, and was designed so that everyone - even non-programmers - can do it. No fancy programs are needed, just a text editor and a web browser!
