On the 23rd of April 2020, we were thrilled to host an Intro to Coding workshop series sponsored by SOLIDitech which included really fun, interactive and productive weekly projects!
Over the course of three weeks, our members learnt the fundamentals of building a basic website using HTML and CSS with an opportunity to test their newfound knowledge by submitting projects based on the weeks topic, facilitated by our very own secretary general, Anesu Chaminuka.
By the end of the workshop series, our members showcased their skills in the Capstone Project. The projects were reviewed based on how well the website caters to a ‘UCT student’s need’ judged on the following criteria:
