Workshop: Pokémon TCG Search UI

The workshop will guide beginners through the basics of HTML, CSS & JavaScript by developing a Search UI for Pokémon TCG (Trading Card Game) API ( The app searches through the Pokémon TCG database and retrieves the cards related to your favorite pokémon. It’s not a game, but rather a platform that allows sending requests to an API/Database and retrieves results that we display on our app, which is a common case in lots of applications development.

The workshop is divided into three parts (+ extra)

    1. The basics of HTML (+ exercises)
    2. The basics of CSS (+ exercises)
    3. The basics of JavaScript (plain JavaScript, no particular framework) (+ exercises)

For those that can complete all three parts without a sweat, there will be extra challenges 🙂

Materials are and head coach talks in English. Other trainers talk also Finnish.
