The CSS necessary to create a simple company page.
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!
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!
Ready to move on, Shawn Wang quit his $350k a year job in finance. Taking a leap of faith, he used freeCodeCamp and other resources to learn coding.

Hear about his journey through finance and into coding in this event and have a chance to ask your own questions!
