A professional website can be a great way to present yourself to future employers, graduate school programs, and internships. In this hands-on workshop, you'll build a basic website with your resume, an "about me" page, and an optional blog. (Sample website: http://lwrubel.github.io) We’ll use the free service GitHub Pages and a Jekyll theme to create a hosted website that you can take with you beyond GW. Attendees should bring a laptop to the workshop.
This workshop is part of the Build Your Skills Workshop Series which features practical, hands-on instruction in useful skills you may not learn in class. Other workshops in this Spring 2017 series are Build a Professional Website with Github Pages, Collaborating Using Github, How to Create Video Tutorials, Learn Linux Shell, Programming with Python, HTML/CSS/JS: How to Build a Web Page, Tagging, Finding, and Organizing Your Digital Files, and Intro to 3D Modeling with Tinkercad. All sessions will be first-come, first served.
