  • September 8, 2014 · 6:30 PM

Want to learn how to build your own website or customize your existing wordpress or tumblr blogs? Want to make the cool app you've been building with us all summer look great on desktop and mobile. Man or Woman, this class is for all of you!

FYI: This course is not taught in a computer lab, you will need to bring your own laptop.

We will guide you through the basics of HTML and CSS using the newest standards in web design (HTML5 and CSS3), give you some readily-applicable skills, and answer any questions you may have along the way.

Please note the refund policy: Your payment of $90 guarantees your seat in the entire course. If something changes after registration and you cannot attend the course, you must notify CWD at least 3 days before the first class to receive a refund. If you have to miss a class, we will provide code from class and any slides, but we do not offer partial refunds based on individual class absences.

    Is it possible to make this a recurring meetup? That way we would get notifications and it would show up on the calendar.

    • Melissa P.

      I'd love to but Meet-up won't let us make it recurring without charging you per meet-up. We'll come up with a solution... maybe you can build one!

    Hi all! Chelsea here. Here is the file that we used last night in class to practice our HTML and CSS:


    For those who were not able to attend, we covered:
    - review of HTML tags, including img tags and tables
    - in-line, in-head, and separate CSS files: the three ways to add styling to html
    - styling with CSS: borders, backgrounds, colors, rounded corners
    - positioning items with CSS: floating, centering, margins, the box model, and grid systems (Addendum: my favorite grid system calculator is this one right here: http://gridcalculator.dk/#/1000/12/20/20. Tell it how wide you want your screen and columns to be, and it will generate a single css file for you to include in your project).
    - Brief explanation of CSS frameworks like bootstrap/foundation
    - The key advantages of LESS/SASS

    next lesson begins with separating our file into html and css files, and test-driving SASS!
