HOUR OF CODE is a global Mentoring & Coding movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries ,131 registered events in Nepal focused on introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics in an hour. Here we are facilitating the coding workshop for 6 hours in total – 2 hours each day targeted to the students of age-group (15-29) where they will be taught about any output based programs on different programming languages like web development includes HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT & BOOTSTRAP.
The objective of this workshop is to build the confidence to code within some hours and develop something on their own capability under the proper mentorship provided by the Girl /women mentors to learn that computer science with fun and creativeness, that it is accessible at all ages, for all students, regardless of background. The measure of success of this campaign is to learn and code – the success is reflected in broad participation across gender and ethnic and socioeconomic groups, and the resulting increase in enrollment and participation we saw today. The training program is focused on the quick market substitutable training and programming projects targeting from the basics of any languages. The training will help the students (especially women) to learn the programming base and develop the confidence to code. The more they are into it, the more they can learn and code.
The training was facilitated by Binita Shrestha and Sinuna Chaudhary includes the basic Introduction, Mentoring, Training, Workshop and Implementations. Though the workshop was for limited girls, we could see the broad participation of around 61 total registrations despite of the volunteer group on venue. The day 1 was more focused on use HTML & CSS tags and designing a basic template on the workshop we conduct after the training session. On following days the same template designs will be updated again and again to turn them into a complete web-page (website sample). We could the diverse group of students from many colleges. And the workshop will be conducted on 27 & 28th of March again starting from 12-2 p.m. each day.
