Workshop (Basic web design series): Basic Web Site Design with CSS 3

February 8, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Registrations are closed.

Instructor: Paul Dehnbostel
Workshop fee: $35

Our second class in the series covers the basics of CSS 3, a powerful language used to create layout and design for web pages. Without CSS, the web would not be nearly as pretty! Best of all, CSS is easy to learn and was designed so that everyone – even non-programmers – can do it. No fancy programs are needed, just Notepad and a web browser. This workshop is designed to be a hands-on experience for beginners with some previous HTML experience (like our HTML 5 Fundamentals workshop). In addition to discussing what CSS is and how it works, we will cover topics such as font and color changes, and the box model. This workshop is BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop).

About our Basic Web Design Series:

The World Wide Web is now 20 years old (!) and has evolved into a powerful, complex model of electronic communication. Our hands-on, beginner-friendly workshop series explores the fundamentals of user-focused web design by introducing participants to its technical as well as its conceptual aspects. This workshop series has been crafted for those with little to no prior experience with web design or coding, rather than seasoned or professional web designers. Please note: all of the series workshops are BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop).

All of the workshops in this series include:

A fun and inclusive learning environment
A nice, arts-focused venue

The classes on offer include:

HTML 5 Fundamentals
Basic Web Site Design with CSS 3
Beginning Programming Using JavaScript (to be offered in the very near future)
