Today marked Coding Dojo’s first Demo Day! The student’s projects were awesome, and we were blown away with what they have been able to build during just 6 weeks of coding fundamentals, part-time. We had about 50 guests attend, some excellent food, and sweet, sweet code.
The purpose of these projects was to help the students take a simple web application from the design/mockup stage to a polished front end and some basic back end functionality. This included solid fundamentals in HTML, CSS, Jquery, Ajax, MySQL, and some PHP. After the holidays, they’ll get to continue on with the advanced portion of the class, covering more backend technologies like MVC frameworks (Rails, CodeIgniter), OOP, TDD. Awesome!
