Aaaand I obviously meant July 27, not January 5, which was the start of the last series. Copy/paste fail.

> 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 web development, 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). We'll be focusing on writing  
> interactive web applications, taking designs and turning them into code,  
> and much more.
> This time around, I plan on switching the order of the classes. Early on -  
> within the first few weeks - we'll learn how to use the command line and  
> version control systems, and then jump into learning about JavaScript.  
> We'll leave the more design-oriented, CSS-heavy courses for later. This  
> reordering might make the material in the first few weeks seem a bit  
> daunting, but I encourage you to challenge yourself!
> This is the first class of a new series of classes. If you or your friends  
> have 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"
> - Explaining web apps vs. web sites
> - Discussing tools of the trade
> - Explaining the separation between structure, presentation, and behavior
> - Writing a basic HTML page
> - Styling the page with basic CSS
> - Adding a small amount of JS
> - Explaining the role of front-end development as a job and career
> The class starts on Monday, January 5 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 the lecture, you can watch a live video stream of  
> the class. Join this Google+ Hangout event to be notified of when to hop on:
> https://plus.google.com/events/csb4llemhmmfa957m2tnd9geigs
> 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,  
> although donations to Noisebridge are welcome and encouraged. Please bring  
> a laptop. Read all of the details here:
