Event description

Description

Getting started with the GOV.UK Prototype Kit


Level

Introductory

Who it’s for
Anyone working in government who would like to learn how to build working HTML prototypes with the GOV.UK Prototype Kit. You don’t need any coding experience to attend.

Designers who have attended Designer Induction: how to be a designer in government and are new to the GOV.UK Prototype Kit or new to code should attend this course.

Contractors currently employed with government are welcome to join.

What you’ll learn
You’ll get a basic introduction to HTML and CSS, learn how to get started with the Prototype Kit, and how to create and link pages. You’ll also learn how to pass user data around your prototype, how to create routes and how to publish a prototype using GitHub and Heroku.

What you’ll need
A laptop to use on the day. You’ll need to install some software before coming – we’ll send an email with details before the day. Some software requires admin permission so you may need to get your IT team to install it for you.

On the day
Arrive by 10am, we'll finish at 5pm. Lunch will be around 1pm for approximately 45 mins and there will be a short break in the morning and afternoon.

Please commit to the whole day. We prefer not to have people leave early, start late or drop in and out of the day as it is unfair to the other attendees and facilitators.
Please let us know if you have any accessibility requirements for the event and if there is anything we can do to enable you to fully participate.

Get in touch
If you have any questions about the training, or need help getting set-up with the Kit ahead of the day, please get in touch by emailing govuk-design-system-support@digital.cabinet-office.gov.uk

Or you can ask for help on the #prototype-kit Slack channel
