What: Nov2Int Study Group Meet and Greet
When: Sunday, February 17, 5:00 PM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Who should come: Anyone that wants to Learn HTML, CSS, web design, design principles, that has no knowledge of either, or has up to intermediate knowledge and would really like to start putting it all together.
Why: This study group will focus on helping folks with all the basics of getting their own website up.
Meeting Description: I've got nothin' fancy to say here so Im'a say it like it is...
Are you someone with only moderate web skills? Perhaps no skills at all? Do you want to learn web basics? While doing so do you want to focus on GOOD habits right from the start so you don't have to unlearn all the garbgage you will have already learned?
Or maybe you are someone who already has learned some web design, and you want to improve. Maybe you want to learn to do standards based design? Maybe you just want to get out of table based design?
Or maybe you want to take some basic HTML and expand it to learn to do a *BIT* of dynamic interaction in your site?
Well then this study group is for you. It does not presuppose you have any HTML or CSS knowledge. It doesnt assume you have a hosting service, a domain or even know what the heck that is. But we will assume you understand the basics of a computer. If you cant turn the computer on, and surf the web, this study group will probably be a bit more advanced than you want. (Though heck, if you come we'll be friendly and try to help on the side).
So what's the gig? Well I am trying to sucker one of the designers into helping us along. But as yall know they are very busy. So this study group might require a fee for the tutoring. Right now we are just having a meet and greet to gauge interest. We will have these 2 weekends in a row on Sunday at 5pm at Caribou in Rocky River. If there is enough interest it might become a common thing. The goal is for this to be an intensive weekly study group, where we work together on each other's sites to get real experience doing stuff.
So if you come, plan to have a site in mind that you'd like to put up. Expect lots of interaction with other study group participants. And there is a limit of 20 people for this study group. In addition you will need to grab a couple of books, since we are going to use them as source material, and be reviewing them together. Also of course we might have a midweek online study group between the students in the CWSA meeting room on Freenode.
Ok yen's that's all I have to say. So Ima see some of yall there on Sunday!
