About this event

In this workshop, you will learn CSS tools and techniques: CSS frameworks like Twitter Bootstrap, media queries to make responsive websites, and more.

The workshop will be a mix of lectures and hands-on exercises in pairs, and will be taught by Mary Ann Jawili, Software Engineer at Salesforce and Truc Nguyen, UX Designer at AdRoll.

This is a great follow-up workshop for those who have attended our HTML/CSS workshop.


Attendees should be comfortable with HTML/CSS fundamentals (HTML tags and attributes, CSS selectors). That means that you either attended our HTML 101 workshop or that you learned those concepts online.

You can review them online at a few places:

•  HTML/CSS: Khan Academy's HTML/CSS course, Codecademy's HTML/CSS course, GDI SF HTML/CSS slides

Tech requirements:

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

• A modern web browser - either Chrome or Firefox.

• A text editor. We recommend Sublime Text 2 (free; available for both Mac and PC) or Notepad++ (PC).

Topics covered:

Cross-browser CSS, CSS media queries, CSS resets & frameworks

Payment is required to attend this workshop. If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, request a GDI scholarship.
