This class will meet on Tuesdays for 4 weeks, starting July 12th.

Want to learn how to build your own website? Already have your own site and want to have more control over it? Interested in learning to program, but want to start small? If you answered yes to any of the questions above, this course is for you!

In this course, we’ll walk you through the basics of both HTML and CSS and help you use them to create a simple website.

We will meet Tuesday, July 12 from 6:30-8:30 PM and continue to meet for the following three Tuesdays (a four-week course in all) through Tuesday, August 2. (Due to the restrictions of Meetup’s registration, we can’t schedule multi-day events, so keep in mind that this Meetup event serves as registration for the entire class.)

This class will be taught by Andrea Jessup.

What To Expect

In this class we’ll walk you through the basics of both HTML and CSS, help you use them to create a simple website, and start you on the path to becoming a web developer.

Concepts will be reinforced through hands on, in-class exercises. Each week will include a small homework assignment which will not be graded but will be evaluated with feedback from the teaching staff.
