Pre-Conference Web Design & Development Workshop
Translate your design skills to the Web by understanding the essential building blocks. In this two-day course we’ll demystify the Web 2.0 toolbox and help you build a compelling, news-driven package from scratch. We will focus on HTML/CSS (the foundation of the Web) and integrating widgets from Google, Twitter, Flickr and more. Flash will be discussed, but the focus is on the other 90% of tools that foster online storytelling—and strategies for getting stuff done.
This course is a good fit for anyone at the beginner level (and print designers looking to transition, in particular), so no worries if they are new ideas. Intermediate users are also welcome—a spectrum of topics will be covered and we can work one-on-one with you.
