Beyond the Basics of HTML/CSS

This 4 part Beyond the Basics with HTML/CSS course runs on Tuesday evenings: March 4th, March 11th, March 18th and March 25th. Classes run from 7:00 - 9:00pm. This is the follow-up course to Newbie HTML/CSS.

Ready to expand your knowledge of HTML & CSS? This class is for you!

Through the course of this four-part class, you'll get a thorough introduction to HTML5 and CSS3 to build on your previous knowledge. You'll get hands-on experience working with HTML5 features like semantic elements and forms, and you'll learn new CSS3 properties and abilities including transformations, transitions, and animation. Finally, we'll dig into responsive design and browser compatibility.

You'll leave with readily-applicable skills and we'll be there to answer any questions you may have along the way!

To get the most out of this class, you should have a working knowledge of basic HTML and CSS. You may have taken Newbie HTML/CSS through Girl Develop It, or maybe you have built a site for fun.

      I have a canvas example for you. If you go back out the the dropbox link (via url I provided in class 1 slides), you will see a new folder called canvas. Download just the folder and check it out! Warning - It's mostly javascript.

      Mindy - Go through the class files from class2 (you should have downloaded these on the first day of class), and make sure to do the labs! There are usually a few of us hanging around before class, so if you bring questions, we will do our best to help!
