=> What you'll learn <=

#1 Code your first landing page ( you'll code some stuff ✌ )

Explore the world of web development, where we'll teach you to code and design your own landing page using HTML and CSS.

A landing page allows you to guide your web traffic into business with a clear call-to-action.

Main take away skills are :

- Learn HTML, HTML a language that defines the structure and content of your web page.

- Learn CSS is the language that gives style to HTML elements. Without CSS, web pages would all have the same design

Before attending, make sure to :

- Bring your laptop fully charged as you will be coding, this is a hands-on workshop
- Install Chrome if you don't have it yet
- Install Sublime Text ( This is a text editor specially designed for programmers

#2 UI Design for beginners ( You'll test a lots of stuff on you computer ✌✌)

You're not a designer, but could use some design skills for your project ? Learn to quickly build a set of icons, a newsletter banner or even a mockup for your app. We'll cover everything you need to know to build your graphical assets:

- Latest and coolest resources for the best pictures, icons, colours, fonts, and patterns.

- Demo of Figma, a popular graphical tool used in startups, to refine your icons, change their colour and shape, export them, and customise any assets (logo, icons, newsletter banner, etc.)

- General knowledge about standard UI components and how they are built.

- Designer tricks and secrets (how to build a nice shadow? Add a filter to a cover pic? resize pictures with different proportions? Create masks? etc..).
