Intro to HTML & CSS

Want to learn how to build your own website? Already have your own website but want to have more control over it? Interested in learning to program but want to start small? This class is for you!

We will guide you through the basics of HTML and CSS, give you some readily-applicable skills, and answer any questions you may have along the way.

This 4-class HTML/CSS course runs for four consecutive Wednesdays - August 14th, 21th, 28th and September 4th. The cost of the class covers all four classes, breaking down to about $22 per class. Financial aid in the form of scholarships is available, please email the Leadership team if you require financial aid.

The course will be taught by Amanda Cheung, a designer and developer at DockYard (http://dockyard.com). Our wonderful Teaching Assistants will be Allen Tseng, Meg Broughton and Sam McTaggart.

Please install the following on your computer prior to class:

  • A laptop and charger.
  • A code editor installed. (We recommend Notepad++ for Windows and SublimeText or TextWrangler for Mac.)
  • A modern browser installed. (We recommend Google Chrome (best) or Mozilla Firefox with the Firebug plugin.)

A huge thanks to our sponsor DockYard for supporting us by offering their space for teaching. DockYard is a web application development software consultancy located in downtown Boston.

    Hey everyone! For those who missed last night's class, you can find the slides at: http://acacheung.com/gdi/index2.html. We got up to completing the positioning exercise. If people want to get started on another exercise, there is the Dogs vs Cats slide to write up the HTML and CSS for (http://acacheung.com/gdi/index2.html#slide-18) as well as extra tutorials and readings on the last slide.

    Email me at [masked] if you have any questions.

    See you next week,
    Amanda

    If anyone is interested, I may be available for a study group this coming Tuesday. Would anyone like some extra help in between classes?

    If people want extra stuff to look at before the next class try out Codecademy (http://www.codecademy.com/courses/web-beginner-en-HZA3b/0/1?curriculum_id=50579fb998b470000202dc8b), Code School (http://www.codeschool.com/paths/html-css) and w3schools's HTML/CSS section (http://www.w3schools.com/). One thing to watch out about w3schools is that it doesn't update their info often enough, but most of the information for HTML and CSS should be fine.

    See all of you next week!
