For the next few weeks starting this Monday, we'll be delving into a couple of classes on CSS! CSS selectors are probably the most complex part of the CSS language, so we'll look at them further in-depth. We'll also talk about the box model, the display concept that makes words and containers on the web look like they do.
If you can't make it to this week's lecture, you can watch a live video stream of the class. Join this Google+ Event to be notified of when to hop on (you don't have to be a Google+ member):
This video stream will also be available to watch after the class is complete.
--- The usual details follow ---
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 on Monday 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. Don't let it discourage you if you're starting from the middle - attend recaps and labs and you should be able to catch up!
This class and the space in which it's taught are entirely free to attend. Please bring a laptop. Read all of the details here:
