Want to learn how to build your own website? Already have your own Tumblr/Wordpress/etc site, but want to have more control over it? Interested in learning to program but want to start small? This class is for you!
This class is great for beginners - no previous coding experience required!
We will guide you through the basics of HTML and CSS, give you some readily-applicable skills, and answer any questions you may have along the way.
Special thanks to our host & sponsor for this class, Sogeti (https://us.sogeti.com/)!
This 4-session HTML/CSS course runs over TWO WEEKS on Tuesdays & Thursdays:
Class 1: HTML Basics - Tuesday, August 14th, 7-9pm
Class 2: Introduction to CSS - Thursday, August 16th, 7-9pm
Class 3: CSS Positioning & Page Layout - Tuesday, August 21st, 7-9pm
Class 4: Common Web Layouts, Tips & Tricks - Thursday, August 23rd, 7-9pm
Please keep in mind that there will be homework between classes. It's never mandatory to complete but certainly highly encouraged. That said, please make sure you have time available in between classes (especially between the Tuesday to Thursday classes) to spend completing the homework. This is the best way to learn these concepts!
At this time, you will need to provide your own laptop - PC or Mac - to participate in the course.
