Building Websites From The Ground Up With HTML & CSS Workshop

October 21 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

This workshop is a part of our Web Dev Track, although it may be taken separately.

The language of the web has changed a lot over the last decade. One thing, however, has stood the test of time: the importance of HTML.

 

In this course, you will learn how to build a website completely from scratch (in the text editor). We’ll go through the basics of building out a website, and show you how to make it look nice on all devices & screen sizes with CSS.

COMPLETE BEGINNERS WELCOME!

  • WHY IS THIS COURSE RELEVANT TODAY?

    While there are a lot of cases in which you can find a ready made CMS (content management system, like WordPress, Shopify etc.) you may want to build your own app that doesn’t have a ready made template for you to copy. For building a site from scratch, the first thing you need to know how about is HTML & CSS works!
