Teach Yourself HTML

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.

    I uploaded a Cascading Style Sheet Template based on the 960 pixel wide screen. This one is from Blueprint. it is 24 columns wide. The original 960 pixel templates can be found at which is 960 Grid system. The original templates are 12 and 16 columns wide. This will help you develop pleasing layouts with consistantly standardized spacing between elements. Cascading Style Sheets keep your HTML code clean. So if you decide to change fonts, colors and or layouts for a multipage site, you will only have to change one to three files.

    I would love to attend this upcoming meetup. But, I am involved in a mortgage fraud case in Federal Court. It just kicked up into a higher today.

    I would suggest we have a meetup where we show the newbies how to correctly setup a LAMP server under Windows, Linux and MAC OS X.

      I believe I can do a walk through of MAMP on Mac as well!
