Today we are going to start the Web Programming unit. There is a great tool called Trinket that will help us work with HTML. What is HTML? HTML, short for Hyper Text Markup Language, is a way to format content so that web browsers know how to display it. We are going to follow this guide and use Trinket to make a web page today! So let’s get started!
These are coders who are just getting started. If you are new to coding in general or just new to Scratch (the language we use to get started) this is the group for you. I think you will have fun with Trinket and HTML. But if you want to Scratch. That’s OK, too.
If you have made it to all the sessions this season you should have a nice little portfolio of your work. That portfolio should include:
- The 10 Blocks Project
- The Build a Band Project
- The It’s Alive Project
- The Music Video Project
I’ve also asked that you share these projects in our Spring Studio. Based on the fact that of the 4 projects in the studio, 3 are projects I put there, I think I have been a bit aggressive with the pace this spring. Based on that understanding, let’s take a breath and revisit some of these projects and make sure we are absorbing the main points of each project.
The three sessions of “official” Python exploration have come to a close. But if Python is your jam, you can continue working with it. Want some ideas what else to do with Python? Keep working through Al Sweigart’s book Invent with Python. Good luck!
Working on something else? Try to recruit people to work on a similar project. Don’t be an island unto yourself. (Or why are you here?)
