Intro to HTML5 & CSS
Students will learn to develop basic web pages using HTML5 and CSS, with best modern practices in mind. HTML5 is drastically different than prior versions, and time will be given to highlighting syntax and usage changes.
Students will learn document layout, basic text semantics, links, images, lists, tables and validation. CSS coverage will include basic text styling, inheritance, positioning and browser testing. After taking this class, students will have a solid foundation for continuing learning more about HTML/CSS.
This class will be taught if a minimum of 4 students register.
So you need to get a web site up and running.
You don’t know the first thing about writing code, don’t have time to become an expert web developer and don’t have thousands of dollars to pay someone else to build you the site you want.
You want something that works that you can handle yourself. WordPress is a free Content Management System that you can install on your web host’s server to quickly create very robust, feature-rich web sites.
This workshop is designed to give you the foundation you need to get your website up and running. You can give it a unique style, add the features you want– and quickly add the content you want to the site, where you need it to be. You’ll leave with a good plan to get going and resources that will actually help you remember what was covered in class.
If you want to work on YOUR site during class, you will need to:
1. Purchase a domain (for example: www.ittybittystudio.com) from a Dreamhost, GoDaddy, Register.com
2. Purchase web hosting package (the company you buy your domain from can usually host it).
3. Bring a laptop that has wireless internet capabilities OR email Jennifer to request a netbook/computer to use during class. (Mac, PC or Linux doesn’t matter.)
4. Download and install FileZilla or an FTP application (FREE!) on your computer.
If you’re not ready to buy your domain and hosting package or aren’t sure about what you need yet:
1. Bring a laptop that has wireless internet capabilities or request a computer from Jennifer. (Mac, PC or Linux doesn’t matter.)
We’ll have a test web site set up that you can get a little bit of hands-on experience playing around with.
