Intro to HTML/CSS

  • Jun 16, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Want to learn how to build your own website? Already have your own Tumblr/Wordpress/etc site, but want to have more control over it? Interested in learning to program but want to start small? This one-day workshop 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. We'll start at 9:30, take a lunch break at 12:30, and end at 6:30.

The course will be taught by Pamela Fox, a frontend developer for Coursera. If you're interested in helping out as a teaching assistant, please let us know. (If you recently took the HTML/CSS class, TAing can be a great test of your skills!)

Please install the following prior to class:

  • A code editor. We recommend Notepad++ for Windows and SublimeText for Mac.

  • A modern browser. We recommend Google Chrome (best) or Mozilla Firefox with the Firebug plugin.

Many thanks to our sponsor Causes for the wonderful space. Causes is a free online platform that provides easy-to-use tools for driving change.

If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, please request a GDI scholarship.

Please note that we cannot issue refunds, since there's an overhead to issuing refunds via and we already offer the workshops at such a low-cost. We put proceeds into the chapter fund, which we use as our scholarship fund.

    Very fun! The class style made it easy to fiddle along with the code as Pamela was giving the talk.

    Are you going to have this workshop in the south bay someday?

    • Liz H.

      Where we have events is dependent upon who sponsors us and offers their space for events. If we get a sponsor in the south bay, we could have it there one day. I can't make any guarantees though.

    I really would like to attend this workshop, but this one is scheduled on Father'd Day (previous commitments). Will you be offering it again? I hope so. Robin.

      We don't have a specific date yet, but we will offer this again.

    I'm interested in joining and i have a Chromebook. Do you have a recommendation for a good web-based/ chrome app code editor I could use?

    I also already know some HTML/CSS basics. Is there a course outline available so I can see what is covered and decide if this would be a useful course for me? Thanks!
