Build a Basic Web Page with HTML & CSS

This event has already taken place, please don't try to go to it!

Want to learn the code behind what powers web pages? In this workshop, you'll learn the basics of writing the behind-the-scenes language (HTML) that web browsers use to display content on a webpage and the styling directives (CSS) that describe how that HTML should be displayed. Attendees will walk away with the ability to create a basic styled webpage from scratch. No previous programming experience is necessary, just a basic understanding of computer files and folders.

Please bring a laptop to this workshop. Prior to attending, please have installed a "text editor" on your laptop. On Windows, this could be Notepad (which comes with Windows), VSCode, or Notepad++. On Mac, this could be TextEdit (which comes with Mac, though requires some changes to settings), VSCode, or TextMate.

All sessions will be first-come, first served and are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Attendance requires no reservation.

This workshop is part of the Programming and Coding series for those interested in enhancing their skills in web or software development, coding and scripting, and automating processes to retrieving or cleaning data.
