HTML / CSS & Responsive_

Evening Short Course

Next Course Begins: TBC 2020
Length of Course: 6 Weeks
Learn to create responsive, device agnostic websites with the latest HTML & CSS techniques.

Welcome to the world wide web! The internet has become ubiquitous in our daily lives, transcending desktops and extending connectivity to smartphones, tablets, cars, household appliances and other electronics. Accordingly, conventional web design no longer meets the requirements of an increasingly connected society that have demands for responsive flexibility and a great user experience.

In this 6 week course, learners will learn the principles and practice of becoming a modern web developer by taking a device­agnostic approach to web design in order to compete across multiple platforms (i.e. desktops, smartphones, tablets and phablets).

Starting from the very basics, learners will be introduced to the latest versions of HTML and CSS – ­the two core front­end languages of the web – in order to effectively structure information and bring their own visual web designs to life.

By taking part in this course you will gain technical insight about the web design process, learn how to structure a flexible website, handle typography and hierarchies, place images and media, create forms, build layouts and learn to use HTML frameworks (such as Twitter Bootstrap). With latest techniques in CSS3 you will learn how to effectively adapt a web page to multiple device sizes using media queries and enhance the experience with custom typefaces, animations and effects all using little or no JavaScript.

Pierre began his career in digital design in 2001. “Teaching is pure passion, it brings a deep sense of job satisfaction when you see the light bulbs go on.”

Please note all our lecturers work as a team, and are booked based on their independent schedules. As such, course allocations are subject to change.

I have done short courses at a different institution before and I must say that my experience at Friends of Design was infinitely better. The lecturer was great, very informative and always willing to help. Even though I had a very good understanding and a lot of experience in After Effects before the course I found that I learnt a lot regardless and got and even better understanding of the program which is what I wanted to achieve. I actually wish the course had been a week or two longer just to gain more knowledge but I think I’ll have to come back to Friends of Design for a different course.
