If this is an opportunity that interests you, you can view the entire posting in our Members Only area. You must, of course, have a passion for dining, restaurants and food culture (now who around here might have those things....hmmm... ;-))

CSS & HTML and Ladies Learning Code
While it's not necessary to be fluent in HTML and CSS as a blogger, it certainly helps! Learning a little HTML and CSS can help you make your blog look a little more unique, make it user friendly and help your Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Simon Fraser University's Continuing Studies Department ran two sold out one day workshops this week on just this, taught by the awesome Ladies Learning Code Organization. And my source at the SFU Continuing Studies informed me on Friday that the Ladies would be back on September 22 with another full day workshop. Tickets are $50 (which is a bargain for a workshop of this kind and are limited to 40 attendees. Student to instructor ratio is 4 to 1 so you'll get lots of help and lunch and refreshments are included. Keep an eye on the SFU CS website for more info and check out the Ladies Learning Code site for more events across the country.
A big welcome to all our new members this week. Welcome aboard everyone! Don't be afraid to step in and join us on Facebook and Twitter or here on the site!
