Do you want to learn how to make your own web sites and apps? Do you want your daughter to learn, too? Most importantly: do you like cupcakes? Then come join us for a workshop led by a professional web designer/developer and her own daughter, complete with tasty snacks and a fun, supportive learning atmosphere.
We want everyone to be able to participate in our workshops, so we offer a number of free scholarships that include a mother/daughter pair ticket plus two single-day city transit passes. If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please fill out our scholarship application.
We always need a number of volunteer teaching assistants to help out with our workshops. Only basic HTML/CSS/JS and computer skills are necessary and free cupcakes provided. If you would like to volunteer for a scheduled workshop, please email us directly. If you're interested in volunteering but can't attend one of our scheduled workshops, please join our volunteer mailing list to receive word of future workshops.
Jen Myers founded Code and Cupcakes in late 2014 and currently leads its workshops. Jen is a Chicago-based web designer/developer who also founded the Columbus, Ohio chapter of Girl Develop It in 2011 and now teaches with and advises the Chicago GDI chapter. She is the single mother of a nine-year-old daughter, whom she has been teaching how to create on the web for two years.
