Learn To Build Webpages With HTML

If there's one technology that all of the Internet depends on, it's HTML. HTML is the language that defines a webpage, and fortunately, it's easy to learn! Jay Wengrow will explain how HTML works and show you how to begin building webpages with it. Bring your own laptop and follow along! And with this foundation under your belt, Jay will explain the other components of web development and what it takes to get started in web development.

    So, I'm an idiot and forgot to grab my laptop before leaving for work. Do you think it would still be a good idea to come? I would just take notes, but would not be able to join in for exercises (if there are any).

      You are fantastic, thank you. And see you there! :)

      And Kristina you too are fantastic! EVERYBODY ELSE, PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THIS...Kristina forgot her laptop, yet still made the most of the situation! She came to take notes even if she couldn't do the computer exercises!!! :-) Great team player & determined learner!!! :-) :-) :-)

    I apologize for not attending this event. I was confused about the dates. I though this event was scheduled for today but it was actually yesterday. Trying to study for the GMAT and apply to graduate school.

    Great. The HTML/Typed Paper Concept was really helpful for understanding how the language could be used to develop a web site.

    Was pretty helpful but I wish it were longer.

    • Jay W.

      Great to know! I'd be totally up to doing that if that's what the majority of people would want. (I'd prefer that as well, but I had assumed people would be too tired at that hour to sit through a 2 hour class.) If others see these comments, please let me know whether you'd also prefer a longer session (combo of talk and hands-on exercises).

      I especially enjoyed the class towards the end when you showed us a page and began breaking it down step by step. I found that especially helpful and would like more examples like that. I also came a bit late so I don't know if this was covered or not but I would have also liked to hear more about how you got into development and the kind of struggles and a pitfalls you've had to deal with and what we can do to avoid them. But yeah, a longer session would have been nice. 2 hours isn't so bad.

    It was great to see everyone last night! Here is a link to the sample HTML page I demoed last night: https://gist.githubusercontent.com/jaywengrow/23d61e6fa2443284c3fb/raw/95f90cf276a50f0d663396f80ad527f164426661/gistfile1.txt

    The one thing I forgot to mention is that when you save the file, it should end with the .html extension - for example: about.html

    Once you save it, if you double click on that file from a file explorer, it should open in your browser. Let me know if you're having any trouble with that.

    Also, there's been some discussion as to possibly making the lesson longer, perhaps with hands-on exercises. If you have an opinion on that, please let me know. Lastly, if you have any questions about anything we discussed last night, or have questions about anything related to programming, feel free to email me at: jay at anyonecanlearntocode dot com. Thanks!

    Hi Jay, thanks for putting the event together yesterday it was very interesting. I also thought it was going to be till 8 pm, I would have definitely stayed longer.

  • Daniel N.

    Basic information but still fun to be at these meet ups. Why are they not 2 hours long?

    May 1, 2014

    • Jay W.

      Thanks for the feedback! I'd gladly extend it if others were interested. I'd probably structure it so that there would be some hands-on exercises in addition to the talk. (The talk might also be slightly longer.) Would that be what you're looking for?

    • Daniel N.

      I think 2 hours for something interesting is a good length. I would have stuck around.

    It was very brief and a good introduction .we had a chance to view different key words with very short period of time.

    Hi fellow coders, Here is a list of links and resources that I'll be referencing during the talk. For those of you following along and/or practicing afterwards, you'll want to keep this list handy. See you soon!

    Just making sure: Will HTML5 be a part of the discussion?

    April 30, 2014

    • Jay W.

      Great question! We will be working with HTML5 standards, but since this is a HTML 101 class, it happens to be that most of what we'll be discussing already existed in previous versions of HTML. Much of what HTML5 brought to the table are more advanced features. But I'm definitely open to doing another meetup dedicated to those features, because that's a great topic as well.

    I'm new to this group but I just might come to this as it's close to where I work. I will probably be a little late though.

    I may be able to attend this event.

    Can't make it :-( Will this revolution be televised ?

    • Jay W.

      Sorry, I don't think it will. But perhaps that's something we'll look to arrange in the future!
