Through the course of this two-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 and transitions. 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 Intro to HTML through Girl Develop It, or maybe you have built a site for fun.
This class meets for two sessions:
December 10th, 10am-2pm
December 17th, 10am-2pm
Both sessions are covered for the $90 class fee.
Introduction to HTML/CSS or basic HTML/CSS experience.
Instructor: Natalie MacLees
