This is Parts 3 + 4 of the HTML/CSS Workshop Series for Build-Your-Own-Webpage package. It is highly recommended that you start the series by signing up for Parts 1 + 2 (Intro to HTML and CSS)!
In this two-day 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, and getting your website to go live.
