About this event

GDI is hosting another HTML/CSS course due to overwhelming demand! If you're just learning to code, interested in web development, comfortable with CMSs like Wordpress and Tumblr but craving more control, this is the class 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 is an introductory course that covers the basics of building a website. There are no prerequisites--this is our intro-level course.

The course will be taught by Shea Molloy,  with curriculum contributed by Alexis Goldstein, author of the book "HTML5 and CSS3 for the Real World." TAs will be on hand to help out! 

Join us for this course or the next!

Because we must have the class list in advance, registration closes the day before this class.

There are no refunds or make-ups for this course. If you end up being unable to attend any or all of these dates, the entire amount of your tuition will be donated to our scholarship fund to help other women who need financial assistance. Thank you for understanding.
