The goal of this class is teach you the basics of front-end development and some simple tricks to help you along the way. I will attempt to cover:
HTML basics and some HTML 5 features
CSS development using the Compass framework
jQuery basics for user interaction
NOTE: You must have Ruby installed on your laptop and be able to install Compass. To install, open Terminal and type:
$ ruby -v
# output should respond with "ruby 1.x.x"
If so, run:
$ gem install compass
Once compass has installed, run:
$ compass create foo
I work on HTML, SCSS and jQuery everyday. I learn something new every week.
