HTML & CSS for You and Me

78a7e62a seeable

Taught by Jonathan Soma

Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, and plans on getting married to Waffle House. In his more droll moments he is a tragic sellout to higher ed as a professor of data journalism at Columbia University's journalism school.

The January sessions meet at our Court Street location, while the February sessions meet in Prospect Heights.

We are going to make some wicked web sites. And by we, I really mean you.

HTML and CSS are the foundations of the Internet; they're the skin and bones of web pages. We'll start from scratch, learning the basics of how HTML and CSS work, how they relate to each other, and just how to get them to do their job in a browser.

Once everyone is comfortable with the basics of displaying and styling content on a web page, we'll move ever upward to wild things like ripping off Pinterest and putting columns everywhere.

If you prefer buzzwords: we'll be looking at the DOM, box model, Web inspectors, floating, spicing your site up with web fonts, animated gifs, and how to abuse the marquee tag. HTML5, CSS3, cross-browser compatibility, and Where Does JavaScript Come In? will make very quick appearances.

You will need to bring in your laptop for this class.
