The Latest From Code Savvy - Meet Our New Board Members
What we’ve been calling Code Savvy 2.0 is now well underway, and part of that restructure includes the addition of some new Board Members!
We are also reimagining some of our program delivery structures, and creating a whole new set of committees for the execution of our mission.
This Week’s Spotlight and Project-Inspiration Theme: World Wide Web Day
August 1st is World Wide Web Day! The World Wide Web (WWW), also known as the Web, is an information system that allows one to access documents and other resources to be obtained over the Internet. Character strings called uniform resource locators (URLs) are used to visit different sites. The standard markup language for documents to be displayed in a web browser is through Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). This is the code that adds plain text, images, embedded video, scripts, and more! It is easy to forget how we did things without the World Wide Web and the infinite ways it impacts our daily lives. Although some websites can be very complicated to create, anyone can create a site using HTML, CSS, or Java.
Check out the resources below to learn more about HTML and CSS to learn how to make your own website:

As we move into a more digital world, the web connects us all. Knowing how to share our stories and create for the web is an essential skill. We are hosting a web development camp this month with the Works Museum for kids ages 11-13 - Sign up today!
