Create A Website: Structure (An Intro To HTML)

The web connects us like never before. It is thrilling to think that somewhere on the other side of the planet someone could be looking at the exact same website you are browsing, maybe at this exact minute even! We are a social species, and we, as a group, enjoy sharing ideas, information and more. We do so continuously and with an efficiency never matched before thanks to the web. In some regards, that is why you want to take this class, because you would like to create a website for the first time ever (or in forever), and you know it all starts with the structure. You can't put up drywall or a roof on a house without building the skeletal frame first. In this class, you will learn the basics of HTML, the content language of the web. We will explore HTML usage, its syntax and best practices when it comes to HTML file setups. We will also look into key features of HTML such as relationships between elements, the box model and specificities (classes, ids, attributes) which will be extremely important as we continue our journey. Finally we will put all that into practice by creating a web page using Codepen.io

This class will be hosted via Zoom. You will receive an email with the Zoom link a day before the class. Attendance will be taken and the session will be recorded.
