Coding for Beginners at the Ponce City Market Shed

The Market Shed at Ponce City Market

About This Event

We are taking a field trip and hosting a Coding for Beginners class on the Outdoor Shed of Ponce City Market beside the Beltline!

HTML and CSS are the fundamental building blocks of the web. Whether you’re a beginner who wants to get started in web development, a designer looking to hand-code their concepts, or a marketer who wants a little more control over their CMS, you’ll need to know HTML and CSS to get the job done.

This session, designed for the beginner programmer, will assume no previous coding knowledge. We’ll go over key coding terminology and principles, introduce languages like HTML and CSS—what their functions are, how they work together—and use that new knowledge to write our own code and develop our own simple site.

Everyone must bring a charged laptop to participate.

Enter from the beltline or park at Ponce City Market and walk to the shed from the 2nd floor just follow the signs for the Beltline!

PR Reimagined

General Assembly

About This Event

Overview: While the foundation of PR remains the same, the way professionals use digital mediums to create a share of voice is constantly changing. PR Reimagined will bring together sought-after PR thought leaders from different industries to shed light on new and inventive practices that any PR professional can utilize in their own role.

Why It Matters: Traditional PR has become just that – traditional. While the world changes to be more untraditional every day, these common methods no longer prove effective. In order to be heard through the online noise, every brand needs to reimagine the way they do PR.

What You’ll Take Away: Regardless of your industry or career level, it’s important to stay on top of the latest trends. Throughout the evening you’ll be able to:

  • Learn how different industries are adapting and reimagining PR to meet their organization’s needs – and most importantly, how you can do it too
  • Find new solutions and technologies to make your job easier and more effective
  • Gain real-life insights on how seasoned PR professionals had to adapt to this new PR landscape and reimagine the way they do business
  • Connect and engage with other PR professionals
  • Have a drink on us (and maybe some free swag)
