Day 1

All Times in EDT

During the workshop, you will

  • Create a login/signup functionality.

  • Build an Account page that shows the user's information.

  • Hide and Show elements based on the logged-in state of the user.

You will learn:

  • Submitting data using the <form> element to an API

  • Using mustache templating to control the data shown on the page

  • The CSS necessary to create a simple company page.

Preparation:

  • If you are new to HTML and CSS, we highly recommend trying yourself the first chapter Create a company landing page at this link https://app.qoom.io/tutorials/login-system/guide.md. You don't need to understand 100%. We won't cover details of basic HTML and CSS to build a landing page due to the limited time.

This workshop is best for people who have a basic understanding of HTML and CSS, but we welcome all people to come and discover the joy of coding and the power of coding with Qoom. Come and learn to take your skills to the next level!

Jason Serafica is a full-stack software engineer, a community organizer, and an unapologetic advocate for under-represented communities in Tech. Jason teaches full-stack web development in San Francisco, and is currently on the leadership team for Out In Tech U, a mentorship program for LGBTQ+ Youth pursuing careers in tech. 

Let's go through some security habits and intuitions that are useful to have for anyone that wants to work as a developer or in IT!
