Hey Mom, Learn to Code

BY SHANE FARVER

Ogden-area moms have the chance to add “technology whiz” to their already-impressive titles this fall. Weber State University is partnering up with MotherCoders — a nonprofit that teaches mothers to find footing in the technology industry — to offer a pilot program this September at WSU’s Community Education Center.

The course, which teaches students to build a simple website using HTML, CSS and Javascript, will run from Saturdays, Sept. 26- Nov. 21. Classes will run from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and use a mixture of reading materials, online and in-class coding exercises, and classroom workshops.

In addition to learning coding languages and skills, students will also learn industry knowledge and form networks with professionals in the technology industry. Those interested can apply at rizenext.com/mother-coders-ogden. Scholarships are available for qualifying applicants.
