Learn to Code in a Low Stakes Environment with Athena Digital Design Agency


Our mission is to champion and inspire Barnard women on their journey into coding literacy through web development. Participants will begin by learning the fundamentals of web design so they can be competitive in the new economy. 

Athena Digital Design Agency will be offering the following courses in Fall 2017:

1. HTML/CSS Course: 

This class is perfect for students who would like to learn the basics of web development! Students will successfully complete several websites by the completion of this course. NO CODING EXPERIENCE or computer science background will be required for participation and applications will be open to only Barnard students. 

2. Introduction to Design for Web Developers Course:

This class is for students to learn the fundamental methods and software of web design and integrate best principles for design into code to build a website. Over the course of the semester you will learn how to use an illustration program such as Adobe InDesign, basic compositional principles, intro to user experience skills, and typography. This class is for students who have already taken the ADDA HTML/CSS course, or have equivalent coding experience. JavaScript, Python, or other functional programming languages are not required, and will not be taught.
