Long talks 🗣

Suze Shardlow (she/her) : "Hackathons For The Uninitiated"

Hackathons are for everyone, even if you can't code. Suze Shardlow, software engineer and Director at Women Who Code London tells how she won her first hackathon before she became a full-stack developer.

Isabel Lewis (she/her) : "The Importance of Semantic HTML"

With accessibility becoming increasingly important to consider in development it's easy to start with the basic building blocks of the page. This talk will go into detail about how we can achieve accessible markup by looking at semantic HTML and give practical ways to introduce this into the code we write every day. We will also look at some tools we can use to test the accessibility of a webpage.

Short talks ⚡️

Niamh McCooey (she/her) : " How to move from CSS to Javascript"

So you learnt to code. You finally feel comfortable with CSS, and think it's time to take the leap into Javascript. But hold up – what the actual f**k?! If you're struggling to understand Javascript after strutting around like a CSS wizard for the last few months, then this talk is for you. It'll highlight ways to make the most of JS when you still feel like you've no idea what's going on, and discuss different ways you can approach its core concepts. After making a career-change from copywriter to self-taught web developer, Niamh will share the tips and resources that proved most valuable to her during this transition, and how you can make the most of them yourself.

Kimberley Cook (she/her) : "6 years of codebar"

Last week codebar celebrated it's 6th birthday. In this quick talk I'm going to talk about how it's grown in that time.
