This course picks up where our CSS Basics class left off - we'll explain positioning and layouts, probably the most challenging part of CSS. Practice is key to understanding layouts, so we'll work through exercises and examples that demonstrate each of the different techniques.
Whether you're relatively new to CSS, or you've had your fair share of trying to sort out terms such as float, fixed, relative, and absolute, we bet you'll walk away from this class saying, "I'm starting to really get this!"
Pre-requisites: An understanding of HTML and knowledge of how to use CSS to style HTML elements. If you've had our CSS Basics course, you're set! Not sure if you are ready? Try this 3-question quiz (http://thewc.co/s/css-quiz)!
Doors open at 6:00pm; if you arrive before 6:00pm, please wait in the 1st floor lobby, as no one will be available to let you in upstairs. We encourage you to arrive by 6:15pm to get a good seat and get set up. Class will begin promptly at 6:30pm.
Class 1 - April 1st: Layout approaches
Class 2 - April 8th: Fixed positioning
Class 3 - April 15th: Absolute and relative positioning
Class 4 - April 22th: Float
