This class if for anyone who wants to be empowered to design, create and host their own websites
You'll leave this class with a basic understanding of the workings and history of browsers, servers and the Internet and the World Wide Web.
You'll also leave with a deep understanding of HTML, having a comprehensive understanding of the various tags available at your disposal.
You will be able to code advanced CSS, and have a deep understanding of positioning, the box model, and the list of CSS rules that are available. You will also have some knowledge of the basic pitfalls of CSS, and how to best organize your files.
Complete beginner is fine. If you know Photoshop that's great, but not necessary - there will be a tutorial video and resources that teach you how to use basic Photoshop. You'll also learn how to buy domain names and host your site, so that knowledge is not needed beforehand.
I'm currently the Director of User Experience at Sailthru, one of the fastest growing New York startups.
I was formerly the founder of Frame, a Techstars company acquired by Sailthru that focused on automatically adapting e-commerce websites into mobile web HTML 5/CSS 3 that felt like native apps.
Before that I was a Program Manager at Microsoft on the Work Management team. I've got extensive development, design and entrepreneurship experience through the work I've done over the years.
