About This Event

Join Flatiron School as one of our Lead Software Engineering instructors guides you through Part One of this AMAZING Two Part series. During this beginners workshop you’ll learn the basic building blocks of building a memory game and how to style it while completing a series of challenges to help you master your new skills.

You will leave with the core concepts of HTML (tags, elements, and attributes), and the basics of CSS (selectors, properties, and values) and some Javascript. All your work will be in a platform that will allow you to code along with your instructor and you can continue to work on it after you leave!
