About this event

Want to learn how to build your own website? Already have your own Tumblr/Wordpress/etc site, but want to have more control over it? Interested in learning to program but want to start small? This class is for you! 

We will guide you through the basics of HTML and CSS, give you some readily-applicable skills, and answer any questions you may have along the way.

This 2-part HTML/CSS course runs for two Saturdays:

Workshop 1: Saturday, August 9 10a-2p

Workshop 2: Saturday, August 23 10a-2p

Due to the restrictions of Meetup's registration, we can't schedule multi-day events, so keep in mind that this Meetup event serves as registration for the entire course. 

Please bring/install the following on your computer prior to class: 

• Your laptop and charger. Note: A netbook or tablet is NOT a substitute.  

• A code editor installed. (We recommend Notepad++ for Windows and SublimeText 2 for Windows or Mac.  Both are free.)

• A modern browser with either Chrome and the "Web Developer"extension or Firefox and Firebug installed.

You can take a sneak peak at the slides** here: Look for the Introduction to HTML/CSS core curriculum.  This series will cover Class 1 through Class 4 materials.  **The teacher may customize/update these slides, but the core material will remain the same.
