Diet <Code> | HTML5 with cheers!

20 June 2012 - 10:12pm -- gisella
Diet Code | Day 1, HTML5
Oh yesss! I'm almost ready for Saturday, Jun 23rd.
So, here I am with the program of the workshop and some news.

Where? / When?

Costech Innovation Space, Sayansi Building, Kijitonyama

Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania)
3.00pm - 6.00pm

What are we going to learn?

We'll talk about HTML5.
Easy way guaranteed, no complications allowed.

Just take note. HTML5 is going to become one of the most powerful tool, not just to develop websites but also thinking about cross-platform mobile apps.

To play around the new HTML5 specifics, matching great CSS responsive layouts, graphics and animations, but also any kind of Javascript function, is simple... and also enjoyable!

Materials & Activities

I'll start with a brief intro to HTML5 - what is it for, what is it possible to do with it, what's new about it and an overwiev about the syntax.

Then we'll try it out. I'll give a sample homepage, where you'll have the possibility to "inspect" the code... and then try yourself!

I'm also making a small ebook, with all the topics we're going to talk about. Download will be available soon.

Do not forget

Must-have for participants, a laptop and a modem (if the Wifi is not working, we never know). If somebody has Dreamveawer, good that way. Otherwise, any other Open Source editor is good, for instance Notepad++. If the network is on our side, it will be also possible to exercise using the online editor Thimble (very good for people who never coded before)... anyway, better to have something working also offline.

Bring also a paper notebook and pen... could be useful.

Who is invited

Designers and developers who want to stay updated, of course. Even people who already know HTML, why not? Some training is always good.

But - good news! - also people who never coded before can join the workshop. HTML is a very simple language, and a little knowledge about how it works can make a big difference even in setting up a simple blog.

So... no reason to be scared.
This can be a good chance to break the "coding taboo" :)

As usual...

At the end of the training I'll be available to see the projects you're developing, to check togheter how to make them great works!
