For tomorrow's class, we'll talk about CSS positioning: spacing them
out from other elements, positioning them absolutely on the page,
positioning them relatively, and more. Last week's assignment -
viewable at http://jeffreyatw.com/static/frontend/series2/class2/assignment.html
- was more about selectors than it was about margin, padding, etc. -
so we'll make sure we're solid on that as well. If we have time we'll
talk about CSS floats as well, but that might wait until the week
after.

The usual details follow below:

Learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript - and put them to good use! This class,
taught by Jeffrey Carl Faden, is aimed at beginners who are interested
in web development, as well as seasoned professionals looking to brush
up on the latest and greatest.

Frontend web development is all about making code that runs in the
browser (versus code that runs on the server). There isn't a big focus
on web design (creating wireframes and mockups), but we do cover best
practices for turning these designs into beautiful code.

The class starts at 8pm and goes until 10pm! We will also have a recap
of last week's material, starting at 7:30pm. If you're either new,
couldn't make last week's class or you simply need a refresher, come
early and we'll go through a simple tutorial.

As always, this class and the space in which it's taught are entirely
free to attend. Read all of the details here:
