HTML & CSS Weekend Workshop
Chris Castiglione, Digital Product Developer
2-day series, November 24th - November 25th 11AM-4PM (Dates below)
Continental brunch and mimosas served
In this weekend intensive course we’re diving head first into HTML & CSS. In my work, I’ve discovered that I could be a better programmer by focusing on the good parts of a language, and avoiding the bad parts. After all, can you really build something with bad parts? In this class we’re taking a project-based learning approach to HTML & CSS that focuses on learning a subset of the good parts so that we can make something (quick and) awesome.
In only one weekend we’ll tackle the barebones of how to quickly develop a web site, and get it live on the Web.
Class 1 (11/24, 11AM-4PM): Developing a Web Template: HTML/CSS getting started & best-practices, using classes and IDs
Class 2 (10/25, 11AM-4PM): Layout: Classes, floats, SEO best-practices: Page Structure: New HTML5 elements, 3 column layouts, developing headers, footers, sidebars
Basic HTML experience may be helpful, but is not necessary.
1) If you feel that you'd like a bit of a head start I'd recommend checking out Code Academy's HTML & CSS for Beginners:http://www.codecademy.com/tracks/htmlcss. (Complete as much of the basics #1 and #2 as you can). Again, it's optional but it may give you some extra perspective.
2) All students must be able to bring a laptop to class (Mac preferred but not required). Please download and install Sublime Text before class: http://www.sublimetext.com/ (Hint: the download button is on the home page).
Please email or Tweet (@castig) the instructor prior to class if you have any additional concerns or questions.
