Intro to Web Development: HTML
June 19 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Queen City Bytes is partnering with Charlotte Mecklenburg Library to help you learn the basics of HTML. This class is friendly for entry-level and beginners!
This month’s workshop is all about HTML – the foundation of the World Wide Web. HTML is also the foundation of making websites and applications accessible for people with disabilities. During this time, we will coach you through best practices, semantic structure, tags, and more using MDN’s free getting-started guide. In this class we will build a simple home page to kickstart your next website.
We will NOT be coding the CSS for the home page during this workshop – be on the lookout for our “Intro to Web Development: CSS” class next month as a follow-up to this class.
9:00 – 9:45: Intro to HTML & Accessibility
5 minute break
9:50 – 10:50: Hands-on Coding using Glitch
10:50 – 11:00: Helpful browser plugins
