NOTE: Season 6 will be led (http://assets.rollingstone.com/assets/2014/article/led-zeppelin-iv-unreleased-black-dog-20140829/166463/large_rect/1401x788-85037467.jpg) by Senior Percolator, David Petringa (http://www.meetup.com/bostonphp/members/67794352/).

HTML5 Brunch, our virtual self-study group focused on HTML5, CSS3 and responsive design, is returning for Season 6. During this season we will learn how to use the free and open source Bootstrap (http://getbootstrap.com/) framework to quickly build websites that automatically reflect each user’s device and experience, without complex hand crafting. Basic knowledge of HTML, CSS and some JavaScript is helpful making this an intermediate-level course.

The book we will use is Sams Teach Yourself Bootstrap in 24 Hours (http://www.amazon.com/dp/0672337045/) which was published on November 14, 2015.

The format of a virtual self-study group is as follows:

• Each participant purchases the same textbook: Sams Teach Yourself Bootstrap in 24 Hours (http://www.amazon.com/Bootstrap-Hours-Sams-Teach-Yourself/dp/0672337045/).

• Each participant commits to read two chapters per week (the chapters are short), complete the exercises and post links to your completed work.

• Each participant obtains assistance by posting questions to a discussion area set up on the Boston PHP Message Board (http://www.meetup.com/bostonphp/messages/boards/thread/49538747/) for each chapter. Each participant will receive personal feedback, as well as, a weekly group e-mail update.

• Each participant who completes the book is recognized on the Self-Study Group | Wall of Accomplishment (http://www.meetup.com/bostonphp/messages/boards/thread/21414292).

Note: There is no classroom instruction. There are no webcasts. There are no scheduled appointments of any kind.

Once you have the book, you simply proceed at a pace that best fits into your current work/life schedule. You DO NOT need to live in the Boston area to participate. Invite your friends, family members and co-workers to join in the fun!
