Building Web Sites with HTML/CSS

  • What this course is about. The Web-7249 course was about teaching Adobe software interface and how they work with web development.
  • The Principles of Web Design I taught last year was about learning what good web design is and how to achieve it through ease of use, navigation, color theory, fonts, branding, and other methods.
  • Building Web Sites with HTML/CSS is about learning HTML plain and simple. When you take this class, we will start out with the basics and have eight 6 hour sessions to jam your head with as much HTML knowledge as possible.
    • It’s not about learning the software (Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Fireworks) – that’s WEB-7249
    • It’s not about learning web design (Usability, ease of use, etc.) – that’s WEB-7200
    • It’s not about SEO, PPC, Email campaigns or Social Media – that’s coming later this year at CPCC
    • You will not be a world class expert at the end of 8 classes, but you will have a great grasp of HTML and CSS

 CPCC offers a variety of web courses

  • I am teaching Building Web Sites with Adobe Creative Suite (WEB-7249) right now. That course ends march 26th. It’s great prelude to the HTML course that starts on the 30th, but you don’t have to take it to learn more about HTML.
  • On March 23rd, I am co-teaching a Jr. Front Web Development Certificate course with Rodney Ringler, who is teaching the JavaScript/JQuery portion of the certificate. This is nearly identical to…
  • Building Web Sites with HTML/CSS, I am teaching starting Tuesday, March 31st.
