Learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript - and put them to good use! This class,
taught by Jeffrey Carl Faden, is aimed at complete 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.

This is the first class of a new series of classes. If you or your
friends been waiting to jump in from the very beginning, this is the
class to take - so spread the word. We'll cover the very basics:
- Explaining "frontend" vs. "backend"
- Discussing tools of the trade
- Explaining the separation between structure, presentation, and behavior
- Writing a basic HTML page
- Styling the page with basic CSS
- Explaining the role of frontend web development as a job and career

The class starts on Monday, September 24 at 8pm, and goes until 10pm!
Plan to arrive EARLY, as the class will probably fill up very fast.
