HTML/CSS: Basic Coding for the Web
9:00am — 12:00pm
Location: Weil 010
About The Workshop
This workshop will introduce participants to the basics of coding in html and css. We will learn how to set up files, host them, use github as a versioning platform and also get into the particulars of creating, manipulating, and styling elements in the browser. By the end of the workshop, each participant will create a single-page website that translates a printed composition, design, image or drawing into an interactive experience. Participants will learn the basics of using text, images, positioning, styling, animation, interactivity, and responsive behavior for multiple screen types. This page may serve as the basis of a portfolio site or future web-based artwork.
Cross Disciplinary Connections
If you are interested in interactive work, the web, and making in code but have limited experience, this is a great starting point.
Participants will leave the workshop with a single-serve website that might serve as the foundation of a future portfolio site or interactive artwork.
