There are multiple garages in the Arena district, however the Marconi Cinema Garage is the most convenient and it is recommended you park there. There is also 2-hr metered parking in front of the building on Marconi as well as on Nationwide Blvd. At this time, we are not able to validate parking passes.

This class will be taught by Caitlin Steinert. Caitlin is a UX Developer working for Base Two. She has been messing around with HTML and CSS since middle school, and has no intention of stopping any time soon. Caitlin is passionate about sharing her love for front-end development – and tech in general – with anyone willing to listen.

We will guide you through the basics of HTML and CSS and help you use them to create a simple website. You will gain some readily-applicable skills, and we’ll answer any questions you may have along the way. Concepts will be reinforced through hands on, in-class exercises.
