HTML5 Brunch, Season 6

NOTE:  Season 6 will be led by Senior Percolator, David Petringa.

HTML5 Brunch, our virtual self-study group focused on HTML5, CSS3 and responsive design, is returning for Season 6. During this season we will learn how to use the free and open source Bootstrap framework to quickly build websites that automatically reflect each user’s device and experience, without complex hand crafting.  Basic knowledge of HTML, CSS and some JavaScript is helpful making this an intermediate-level course.

The book we will use is Sams Teach Yourself Bootstrap in 24 Hours which was published on November 14, 2015.

The format of a virtual self-study group is as follows:

• Each participant purchases the same textbook: Sams Teach Yourself Bootstrap in 24 Hours.

• Each participant commits to read two chapters per week (the chapters are short), complete the exercises and post links to your completed work.

• Each participant obtains assistance by posting questions to a discussion area set up on the Boston PHP Message Board for each chapter.  Each participant will receive personal feedback, as well as, a weekly group e-mail update.

• Each participant who completes the book is recognized on the Self-Study Group | Wall of Accomplishment.

Note: There is no classroom instruction. There are no webcasts. There are no scheduled appointments of any kind.

Once you have the book, you simply proceed at a pace that best fits into your current work/life schedule.  You DO NOT need to live in the Boston area to participate.  Invite your friends, family members and co-workers to join in the fun!

How do I get started?

• Become a member of Boston PHP if you are not already a member. Simply click: Join us!

• Register for HTML5 Brunch, Season 6.  Simply RSVP: Yes

• Purchase a book (the only program cost). Simply visit Amazon.com and order Sams Teach Yourself Bootstrap in 24 Hours in one of two formats -- paperback or Kindle.

When your book arrives, start your virtual learning by reading one chapter at a time, completing the exercises and posting a link to your completed work.

FAQs:

Q: How long will the course last?

A: We will cover 24 chapters (two per week) in the book starting Sunday, February 28 and ending Saturday, May 21.  Refer to the HTML5 Brunch, Season 6 -- Master Discussion List for specific dates.

Q: Do I have to wait until Sunday, February 28 to begin?

A: No need to wait! Feel free to begin as soon as you obtain a copy of your book.  Simply post a message on the Introduce Yourself: HTML5 Brunch, Season 6 message board once you receive your book so that we can gauge participation. Then, proceed at a pace that best fits your current work/life schedule.

Q: Do I have to live in Boston to participate?

A: Not at all. This program is virtual. We have successful graduates from many states and even have graduates from countries in Europe and Africa.

Q: What if I have additional questions?

A: Simply post a reply below and you will receive a response.

    Once bootstrap is downloaded into a folder, does it then serve as a resident source for any number of web pages to be created?

    February 5, 2016

    • Jennifer K.

      as long as you point to that folder you can use the same Bootstrap source for any of them. I typically put Bootstrap in a directory just off the root, and then link to it from every page on the site.

      Woah, there are some excellent tools in that list. I bought Pinegrow a couple of years ago but haven't been using it, nor have I updated the licence.

      Instead, I just downloaded and installed Pingendo and had a bit of a "lightbulb" moment on the grid concept (that'll teach me for ignoring frameworks all this time!).
