On Monday, we're going to take the knowledge we gained from looking at the
CSS box model, floats, and positioning, and work off of something given to
us by a designer (me). If the previous classes didn't hit home how to use
all of these skills, this should do the trick.

We'll work off of a mockup (

 annotated version (
to make a site that could pass as a professional design (but don't take my
word for it). Image assets can be found here:

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.

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:
