Attend this meetup if you want to start teaching yourself the language of the World Wide Web, HTML, with other beginners (Newbes). Only prerequisite is that you have a laptop and a positive attitude. You can also attend the group to meet the organizers and host and check out the East Oakland tech vibe at SydeWayz ;)
Why learn HTML?
• Good first language because you can see the results of your code right away.
• Lot's of free online tutorials, tools, and downloadable programs to help you start creating working code at your own pace.
• It's fun and visually rewarding. You can hack others code to learn advanced techniques and styles.
• It is core computer knowledge. Even if you plan on specializing in another language, you will probably have to know some HTML
What can I expect from this meetup? To meet others who have similar interests in computers and programming, who can become a support base and study group to help stay focused and maintain pace for completing a self-appointed course.
I will post links to some online resources soon.
