Floating is the secret sauce behind creating websites with multiple
columns, navigation menus, and basically any block element that's aligned
to the left or right. We'll learn about floats by taking a look at some
examples, then take a mockup (

a site from it.

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

Some upcoming dates to remember:
- I will be away on vacation soon, so there will be no classes or labs on
the weeks of June 30 or July 7.
- Noisebridge will be closed for repairs for the remainder of July, so I
will be teaching my class at an alternate location. Thank you to those who
have suggested/offered spaces so far. I am considering teaching at my
company's office at Pier 9 on the Embarcadero and will be bringing this up
for consideration on Monday - if this location is too inaccessible, please
tell me ASAP as I would like to accommodate as many people as possible!

--- The usual details follow ---

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.

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.

This class does go in a series, but the series can last up to half a year.
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:
