Event Details


Curious about General Assembly’s Front-End Web Development course? Join us for a Trial Class — meet the instructor, get an introduction to the curriculum, and experience a sample session of the course.

What exactly is front-end web development and why does it matter?

HTML and CSS are the fundamental building blocks of the web. Whether you’re a beginner wanting a little more control over your CMS or a professional programmer trying to make better front-ends for your web-apps, you need to know HTML and CSS to get the job done.

In this trial session, you’ll take a quick dive into the world of coding — exploring elements, tafs, structure, and design — through “code-along” exercises designed to help you get started building simple web pages, while helping you decide if the the full course is right for you.


  • Basics of the internet and how webpages work
  • Begin coding a simple webpage in HTML & CSS.
  • Know various tags and when to use them.
  • Understand the basic structure of webpages.
  • Learn techniques to use at-home when stuck on code.
  • Decide if you want to enroll in Front-End Web Web Development at GA.


Bring your laptop and your desire to learn front-end web dev.
