Coding in the ClassroomTam Kbeili
Learning to code is full of adventures, both good and difficult. Having a mentor or someone to guide you can make the experience amazing. In this talk, Tam will provide tips and methods for effectively communicating coding knowledge and cultivating a mentorship program. We’re all in this together!
Flipping <table>s: Displaying Data on Small ScreensStephanie Hobson
Data tables like to break our carefully crafted responsive websites. On smaller screens they mess with us when they won’t reflow nicely. They a bit claustrophobic when they don’t have enough space. Stephanie will talk about what makes a table easy to read, show the code that helps, and offer design suggestions for how to display data when there isn’t a lot of space.
We will head out afterwards to continue the conversation over some drink and food. Location announced at the event.
