About this event

Session 1: Saturday July 11, 1:00pm - 5:00pm 
Session 2: Sunday July 12, 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Food & drinks will be provided by Grand Circus on both days. 

Now that you've mastered the basics of HTML & CSS, let's take it to the next level! 

Through the course of the two day session we'll review the basics so everyone is on the same page and then we'll move onto the new stuff! 

You'll learn:

• Standard practices that designers/developers use. CSS resets, standard widths, wrappers, and other tricks.

• What's this new fancy HTML5 and what can it do? Differences, compatibility, upgrades, semantics, new elements, accessibility, and how to use it today.

• CSS3 - the shiny bits! Vendor styles, new properties (omg rounded corners!), transitions, and what you can use today & how. 

 Anything else that comes up! As always, we're here to answer all your questions throughout class. 

This class will be taught by Aisha Blake.

• Understanding of HTML/CSS, including:
• How classes & IDs work with HTML & CSS 
• CSS targeting with IDs/classes/elements/etc. 
• If you've taken our Intro to HTML/CSS class or equivalent, you'll be good to go! 
• Review Session 1 slides & Session 2 Slides of Intro HTML/CSS before attending.
