About this event

In this workshop, you'll learn HTML and CSS, the languages used by all of the billions of webpages out there today to mark up and style content. HTML and CSS are incredibly useful skills for bloggers, content creators, email marketers, small business owners, designers, and are absolutely necessary skills for frontend web developers.

This 2-day workshop will be largely "self-paced". That means that we'll start with a round of introductions and an overview, and then you'll watch videos and do coding challenges at your own pace, using Khan Academy. We will stop to work on pair projects every few hours, and we'll have TAs to answer questions and help when you get stuck.

The workshop will go from 11:45-6pm each day, and start with a catered lunch


Attendees are not expected to have any previous HTML/CSS or programming experience.

Tech requirements:

•  Your laptop (Mac, PC, or Linux) and charger.
