Create an HTML email from scratch! (and how to test it)

Hi Everyone! Sorry for the delay in recent meetups.

Our next meet up will teach you how to create an HTML email from scratch and test it in all the popular email clients.

In this meet up you will learn the fundamentals of email coding and how to properly plan for the limitations of email design.

We will also discuss the different email clients and direct mail companies and how to choose the one right for you.


Email coding ( even though tedious and a bit boring ) is a hot topic in the job market. It will help you polish your skills and possibly open the doors to new jobs that require you to know HTML and CSS.

** Feel free to bring your own custom email design and we will discuss it in class and help you to lay it out **

    What is a typical layout size comp if we build something simple to bring in....my guess is a flat 640px x 480px. Is that correct?

      600 is what most companies use.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
