ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP SERIES

Dive head first into HTML & CSS. This weekend workshop takes a project-based approach to HTML & CSS. By distinguishing good code from bad, participants will focus on learning a subset of the good parts in order to make something (quick and) awesome.

PREREQS & PREPARATION

Basic HTML experience may be helpful, but is not necessary. Bring a laptop to class (Mac preferred but not required). Please download and install Sublime Text (Hint: the download button is on the home page). If you'd like a bit of a head start, check out Code Academy's HTML & CSS for Beginners (Complete as much of the basics #1 and #2 as you can). Again, it's optional but it may give you some extra perspective. Please email or tweet at the instructor prior to class if you have any additional concerns or questions.
