Prerequisites
Looking for a cure to the common canned site? You know the deal--sites that are clearly made from a template are easy, convenient, and keep you from having to learn code. But, they look just like many other sites. They don't let you fully express who you are and what you have to offer your visitors. Don't fear the code. It's here to help. HTML and CSS are two of the easiest computer languages to learn. In this course, you'll learn the basics of how to create a custom website that presents you to the world - the way you want to be seen - in seven weeks! Your site. Your voice. Your way. You can take the tools you just learned and earn your money back doubled, tripled creating sites for your family, friends, and clients.

Co-Teaching E. Genevieve Williams and Michael Ian Weinfeld

My father taught me to build a cabin in the woods when I was 16. We were air dropped into our 400 acre plot of land with lake in Northern Ontario. For the next three weeks, my sister, stepmother, my father and I built a cabin with just a few tools and lumber from the property. We had a local helper, a man named "Peg Leg Mike," who actually did only have one leg. Since then I helped my father build the cabin I now live in. I renovated it after he died in 2000. All the plans for the design were my own, bouncing off my father's original vision for the cabin and  property.
