    .. and just like that, we’ve come to the end of our second workshop, this time on HTML and CSS! Thank you to all the amazing coaches and ladies who participated. We are truly impressed by the hard work and effort. 🙂 For the benefit of those who are keen to learn as well, here’s a quick recap of what we’ve covered and where to go next!   The Plan – we chose to follow with an online syllabus and try a study group model this time around, mainly because we know that web design resources are all out there for you to find, but you just need to have to know what and where to search.
