Trade School Detroit: Intro to Web Development

  • Tulani Rose 4201 Cass Avenue Detroit, MI, 48201 United States (map)

APRIL 17: Intro to Web Development

The entire African-American population holds a mere 2% stake in the tech job market within the United States. Additionally, only 26% of all software engineering roles are held by women. Like learning any new language, becoming proficient will take dedication and focus, and will bring more self-sufficiency in a world where knowledge of coding can allow you to take the reigns of your aspirations. Join Kwaku in an intro to web development workshop where you will receive exposure to HTML/CSS for real life application and to increase your web development capabilities.

led by Kwaku Osei-Bonsu
2:00 - 3:30 PM | 4201 Cass Ave Tulani Rose


Trade School Detroit is a series of workshops that lifts the knowledge that exists in a community and challenges the traditional structure inside classrooms. Everyone in the community is encouraged, regardless of age, to lead a workshop under the idea that if you have practiced or studied a topic for a number of years, even without a certification, your knowledge is valuable and someone else can benefit from it, so it should be shared. The intention of this "school" is to deepen our understanding of energy exchange, through bartering to compensate teachers for their sessions, and to share the extensive knowledge that exists in our communities. No money is exchanged! All compensation is in the form of goods, time or services. Through this, community knowledge is valued and lifted, and ideally, made more accessible.

If you are unable to attend any workshop but have suggestions for future topics or want to lead a workshop, fill out this form to help generate ideas. 

Our community has knowledge. Let's celebrate it's wisdom through mutual respect & barter. See you at a session!
