The professional event Le Web à Québec (WAQ) unveils this year a special two-day program for young people, the WAQ Junior.

Our Web in Quebec (WAQ) has become, over the years, one of the most popular French-language festivals in the digital industry in North America. Its fame even extends to Europe. The program for the seventh edition was unveiled on January 18, 2017. “For three days, specialists in the Web, mobile applications and communications will participate in conferences and workshops. Eight master classes were added to this year's program. These are three-hour conferences that will allow you to deepen subjects such as artificial intelligence ”(Radio-Canada).

4 workshops for 8 to 14 year olds and school groups

The big news this year is that the event has a component WAQ Junior, which will take place during the weekend of April 8 and 9, 2017.

“(…) The WAQ-Junior aims to introduce the code, the design and the concepts of creation of Web content to young people aged 8 to 14 years (…) by concretely experiencing the reality of people in this field”, explains- on the registration page.

The four workshops planned for this first edition will focus on:

  • web programming
  • web design
  • social media management
  • content creation for the web

They will be led by web professionals, supported by Quebec and French students.

It is important to note that the day of Saturday April 8 is reserved for school groups (to express your interest, write to info@webaquebec.org). The one on Sunday April 9 is open to all young people. Registration (free) is required and there are 100 places available.
