HTML5 Brunch, Season 13


Narrowing the skills gap, one module at a time.

This virtual self-study group will provide you with the foundational skills you need to begin mastering Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), a styling language (used in conjunction with HTML) that allows you to control the appearance of web pages. At the end of the course, you'll walk away with an actual project—an online résumé page.

LinkedIn Learning offers an 8-module, video-based course entitled "CSS Essential Training." Duration: 5 hours

Access to this training opportunity is available for FREE to Boston Public Library members. Residents of Massachusetts can obtain a Boston Public Library card for FREE. Non-Massachusetts residents should contact their local library or obtain a paid subscription to LinkedIn Learning.

NOTE: This virtual self-study group will be led by Gene Babon, Chief Percolator. Boston PHP Meetup's ability to offer these learning opportunities is dependent upon facilitators (Senior Percolators) stepping up to lead the Season and assist participants. A Senior Percolator is someone who is interested in the topic, participates in the group AND is willing to lead by helping others along the journey with periodic communications. Learn more about becoming a Senior Percolator and giving back to the Boston PHP community.

Self-Study Group Format

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

• Each participant gains access to a LinkedIn Learning account.

• Each participant commits to review one video-based module per week, complete any exercises and post progress updates as you complete each module.

• Each participant obtains assistance by posting questions to a discussion area set up on the Boston PHP Message Board for each module. Each comment will receive a response from your Senior Percolator. Participants will also receive a weekly group e-mail update from your Senior Percolator.

• Each participant will receive a certificate to post to your LinkedIn account upon completion of the course.

NOTE: There is NO classroom instruction. There are NO Zoom meetings. There are NO scheduled appointments of any kind.

Once you have access to LinkedIn Learning, you simply proceed at a pace that best fits into your current work/life schedule.
