INTRODUCTION TO WEB DEVELOPMENT PART 2 – HTML – Monday, July 17 at 6 PM
We will use HTML code to ensure the proper formatting of text and images so that your websites display as they are intended to look. CSS allows Web Developers to alter the layout and appearance of their Web pages. A single CSS file may be linked to multiple pages, allowing a developer to change the appearance of all the pages on your site at the same time. One could think of HTML as the bones (structure) of a Web page, and CSS as its skin (appearance). We strongly recommend participants attend all three classes on Mondays in July as they build on each other. Bring your laptops. R
