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

Front-end 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 "front-end" vs. "back-end"
- 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 front-end web development as a job and career

The class starts on Monday, November 11 at 8pm, and goes until 10pm! Plan
to arrive EARLY, as the class will probably fill up very fast.

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:

This video stream will also be available to watch after the class is
complete.

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:

P.S. This might be the last series I teach for a while. I might take a
longer break after the end of the series (in about 6 months). We'll see.
But if you've been meaning to attend, this is your chance!
