Monday's Frontend Web Development class will expand upon last week's
class where we took a simple mockup and turned it into HTML and CSS.
We'll be doing it again, but this time with a much more real-world
example:

Or more specifically, this annotated example.

This exercise will put our knowledge of HTML elements and CSS
positioning to use, as well as teach us a few more tricks of the
trade, such as background images and fancy CSS3 properties.

--- 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! Plan to arrive EARLY, as
the class has been filling up very fast. We will 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:
