    Had a blast today! I had no idea HTML could do so much! I'm excited to get going, build my version of the Google search page, and get deeper into not only html/css but also javascript! See you guys next week!

      There are lots of ways to learn to code. Some people do better alone, others do better in groups. It's up to you, but if you want to meetup in a friendly environment with some personal guidance, then I'll be there for you.

      I made an adjustment to the price for the HTML/CSS course to $20. It's a true beginner level course for web developers. After much discussion with other developers, I think HTML/CSS is the best place to start learning.

    I can't make it to this one as I have a prior commitment. It would be helpful, now that you've outlined the 'categories' of beginners to note with each new class, which category it's for. Please send links to any resources. Thanks.

    How long is the class and how many assistants do you plan on having?

    Also, what apps do we need to have loaded on our laptops?
