About this event

In this project-based workshop, you'll learn how to go beyond with HTML and CSS: using the popular CSS Framework Bootstrap for responsive design and pre-built components.

The comprehensive workshop will be a mix of lectures, pair programming, and hands-on exercises building your webpage. It will be taught by Truc Nguyen, Senior UI/UX Designer at Unity Technologies, and Esther Weon, Full-Stack Software Engineer.

By the end of this workshop, you will know how to make a responsive web page using a framework like Bootstrap (e.g making your web page look great on phones, tablets, and desktop computers).

This is a great follow-up workshop for those who attended our Intro to HTML & CSS workshop (https://www.meetup.com/Girl-Develop-It-San-Francisco/events/241868963/).
