Free Crash Course: Build Your Own Portfolio Site


What You'll Learn

In this crash course we'll be helping you build your own personal website! You can use this as a web portfolio, or to host anything that you'd like showcase or share wih the web. In order to help you build it, we'll be covering the basics of HTML, and CSS with our instructor Eric Sowell ( No prior knowledge of either is assumed. This is for beginners!

What Do I Need to Bring?

To get the most out of this, you will need to bring your computer. In this crash course we're working together to make something useful for yourself. We're going to help you build yourself a simple portfolio website, and if you sign up for Amazon S3, how to get it running up on the Internet.

Some things to note:

1. We're not assuming that you have any knowledge of HTML.

2. We will be doing this together. We're not just going to be talking and showing.

3. For those who are prepared for it, we'll actually push it up on the Internet and see it live on our computers and/or phones.

Who is this for? Anyone who wants to learn a little HTML and CSS.

What do I need to know? Nothing in particular.

What do I need to bring? A laptop!
