Learn about—and utilize—HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and more with these two new coding programs for teenagers.

Westchester Community College Center for the Arts is adding two coding programs for teenagers age 15 and older: Weekend Front End Coding Boot Camp and Design Code Boot Camp.

Both classes will teach children how to use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, which are the basic languages and codes used to build and design pages on the Internet. The programs will also teach children the important technology skills of the world while creating a space for innovation, fun, and community.

“Learning how to code is akin to learning how to write in the 21st century,” says director Sherry Mayo. “It is a fundamental skill that everyone needs.”

Weekend Front End Coding Boot Camp is designed to teach teens HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and front-end code. Front-end code is the code that is most widely used to build web pages on the Internet. By taking this course, teenagers will learn the skills of coding and gain a better understanding of the languages used to design a website. This class is designed for teens who are looking to expand their knowledge of design and learn more about Internet coding. It's also an opportunity for teenagers to expand their work-related skills to appear more competitive in the work force. Weekend Front End Coding Boot Camp will be offered on weekends Jan. 20-28 from 9:30am-4:30pm (including a lunch break).

Design Code Boot Camp will utilize HTML, CSS, JavaScript with a software development kit, and Photoshop to produce a website as a portfolio piece. Students will learn the fundamentals of Photoshop and also build a shopping cart for their website. Design Code Boot Camp will be held on Saturdays Feb. 17-March 10 from 9:30am-4:30pm (including lunch break).

Westchester Community College Center for the Arts is located at 196 Central Ave. in White Plains. For more information call 914-606-7500 or visit sunywcc.edu.
