workshopping a workshop where students will learn how to hand code a web page

what is this?

a one hour workshop where a group of students will learn how to hand code a web page by working on each others computers

they will learn how to do this kind of coding slowly and with care.

equal attention will be given to html elements, css styles, and the content on the page. through adding and styling the content of each others web pages students will learn the basic building blocks of web development as well as what it feels like to code with and for each other.

workshop slides are here !

html + css syntax references here !

Note: You will need your own computer to participate in this workshop. We will be switching seats and working on each others computers so you should also be comfortable with someone else using your computer. We will only be working within one file in a text editor and it will already be opened by the time another student sits down at your computer.

  1. Please have a text editor installed on your computer. Atom, Sublime Text, VS Code are all good choices!
  2. Please download this file
  3. Move it to your desktop so that it is easily accessible to you and other students
