Introduction to the web and some HTML basics

Tonight would have been hardware night, but we had a smaller turnout than usual, due to an event at one of the high schools and we had a few new faces so we decided to do a night focused on the internet and on HTML.

We started off the session discussing how the internet works, the basics of Servers and Clients, Domain Name System, Universal Resource Locators and a few other web related fundamentals.

We then moved into the basics of HTML and the structure of a web page.

It's really inspiring to see youngsters getting started on coding. I can't wait to see them turn into strong coders down the line.

Tonight was our first session where girls attended and showed an interest in technology, we hope it won't be the last.
