PSD to HTML Project Day

Do you want to become a front-end developer or freelancer? Have you taken an HTML/CSS class or dabbled with it on your own? It's time to apply your skills by building a webpage from start to finish (or come in and get help with your site)!

The best way to combine all your HTML/CSS skills is by jumping in and doing it soup to nuts in a supported environment. Join us in a group setting and learn how to slice a design - i.e. create a site from a design file we will provide (or come in and get help with your own site). The main purpose of this class is to provide you with assisted work time focused around a common, simulated but realistic project to reinforce your skillsets. You will learn the process of breaking down a mockup, the best practices in getting started, and you will gain experience constructing the main elements of a webpage. Experienced TAs will be there to get you started and help you out along every step of the way.

Please note that we will not be spending much time on the Photoshop aspects of this process in this class, instead focusing on the problem-solving and strategy that goes into "reading" a design file and building a website from that file, while practicing our HTML and CSS skills. 

If you want to become a front-end developer, you should attend this session. Come prepared with a laptop, snacks/drinks & determination!

Note: This is a working session, NOT a lecture. It is limited to 20 spots. You must score at least 65% on this quiz to register.

    Great exercise, well presented, and the facilitators / teachers were welcoming and skilled. Nice to work work alongside others and get help along the way. Held in a great work space, too.

    How sophisticated do your HTML/CSS skills need to be to benefit from this class? I'm a designer, and would say I have a basic understanding (80% on the quiz) but definitely don't consider myself a coder, although I'm learning.

      The bulk of the time is spend practicing your coding skills with myself and TAs to help you out so you should be just fine! I would say there's usually a range as far as how far people get in their projects but it's targeted at "advanced beginners" and up.
