This class is a general overview on version control and the command line.
Most developers collaborate with their peers by using version control
systems, which allows them to keep track of their work in a reliable
fashion and push it to the web.

Again, this class isn't about web development per se - it's just an
important introduction to using the command line to work with Git, one of
the most popular version control systems. Everyone will create their own
fork of a repository and check in their work.

During the half-hour before the class, we'll help people set up Git on
their computers. On OS X, type "git" in a Terminal to get started. On
Windows you should install Git for Windows (http://msysgit.github.io/).
Also, please sign up for a GitHub account (https://github.com/).

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).This class focuses on writing
interactive web applications, taking designs and turning them into code,
and much more.

The class starts on Monday at 8pm, and goes until 10pm! Plan to arrive
EARLY, as the class can fill 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:
