HTML & CSS 101: Website Building - Saturday, Feb 18th

Want to learn how to build your own website? This class is for you! We will guide you through the basics of HTML and give you some readily-applicable skills in building a webpage.

This class will be offered on Saturday, February 18th from 10 am to 4 pm, which leaves 5 and a half hours for class time and 30 minutes for lunch. 


We are honored to have Tessa Kriesel, an Agency & Community Engineer at Pantheon, teach our class. She has a degree in web development and has 11 years of experience under her belt.


None! We will work from the ground up, and cover all the HTML & CSS fundamentals needed to build a basic website.
