Code for Cape Town partnered with Booking.com to co-host a one day coding workshop with program participants.

The workshop complemented Code4CT’s Grade 10 program, which takes girls from zero coding knowledge to a basic proficiency in web development. The learners, who were completing Code4CT’s Beginner JavaScript course at the time, attended the workshop to further develop their coding skills and to meet the techies of Booking.com.

At the workshop they used JavaScript, HTML and CSS to code a booking form which mimics a reservation form used on Booking.com. Upon submission of the form, basic validation needed to be added to check that a value had been entered (required) for each field. I.e. The ID number needed to be 13 characters in length.

Both the Code for Cape Town participants and the Booking.com team had a great time getting to know each other and collaborating on the assignment.
