West Hollywood Library
—The West Hollywood Public Library will offer free weekly web programming workshops beginning Wednesday, October 23.


West Hollywood librarian Oleg Kagan told the Canyon News he would be conducting the basic web workshops for free every Wednesday from 5 to 7 p.m. Kagan said the workshops are designed for beginners who want to learn more about web programming languages and coding, such as HTML or CSS or how to develop a mobile app.

“Web design skills are becoming a must for many careers,” the event page on the Los Angeles County Public Library website states. “Whether you want to upgrade your resume, create an online home for your reel, or teach your computer to prepare coffee, web design & app development knowledge can help you.”


Kagan said the workshops would not be lecture-style classes. Instead, the two-hour workshops will provide a space for people with different needs and levels of experience to come together and learn about computer coding with one another. He indicated that he will answer questions and point learners to online resources that will help them develop the skills they desire. The workshops will not be covering web design or applications such as Photobucket, Kagan added.


“We don’t know what to expect yet and don’t know what will develop as the group comes together,” stated Kagan. “The sky is the limit with these workshops,” he added.


Participants are asked to bring their own laptops, basic computer skills and a positive attitude. The West Hollywood library is located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard. To contact Oleg Kagan for more information, call (310) 652-5340 Ext. 3 or email him at okagan@library.lacounty.gov.
