To celebrate Computer Science Education Week, the HSU Library hosts coding events during the second week of December. The Hour of Code is the largest learning event in history- with tens of millions of students learning computer programming across the world. Below is a list of online tutorials that we have covered in these events. These are all designed to be taken on your own, though, so if you missed the events, click on the links below to get started with these short sessions.
There are many options for coding on the web but we'll be using Glitch, which allows you to create web apps completely online for free! We'll be using our HTML, CSS and JS skills from Monday and Tuesday, so if you weren't able to attend those, be sure to complete the Dash tutorial before coming to this workshop. You can view a version of the DASH project in Glitch to see how you can create and link to separate files in Glitch.
Tinkercad is a free and easy way to create 3D models online. We will explore the basics of using Tinkercad and creating objects by following their step-by-step lessons. For people attending Friday, we will be able to then use these 3D creations into a VR world using A-frame.
There are several free online tutorial sites to help get you started learning the basics of computer programming for creating on the Web:
