Participants of this workshop will learn how to “hand code” for the web through the creation of collective web pages. The session will start with a brief lecture on the significance of coding slowly and by hand. participants will learn how to do this kind of coding by example and with care. Equal attention will be given to HTML elements, CSS styles, and the content on the page. Through adding and styling the content of each other’s web pages students will learn the basic building blocks of making a website as well as what it feels like to code with and for each other.
