CSS Basics (2-class series)


CSS is HTML's other half and the way we style web sites. If HTML is the frame if your house, CSS is the paint, curtains, light fixtures, etc.

In this two-class series, we'll guide you through everything you need to know to start bringing your site design to life. We'll begin by explaining the three methods of connecting CSS to your HTML, explaining when and where you'll use each.

Then, we'll introduce you to the CSS style properties that will let you control everything from font size to padding to margins to background images to you name it.

Pre-requisite: Experience with HTML and basic web site publishing.

NB: This course is the essential precursor to our CSS: Positioning & Layouts class and a prerequisite for many other classes we teach.



Thursdays @ 6:30-8:30pm (Doors open at 6:00pm to get a good seat and get set up)

Class 1 - October 3rd: The why and how of applying styles

Class 2 - October 10th: Colors, typography, borders, margins, padding, etc.

All the notes for the course will be available online for you to use during and after the class.

    The main page for this event is saying there is one spot left, but it won't accept my RSVP. Is there actually a spot?
