February: Punch it up with HTML and CSS with Amanda Aitken

February 7th, 2012

Do you have a blog or website – but somehow feel it’s not quite “you”? Do you know what it’s like to spend HOURS looking for the perfect theme or template for your web project, only to keep coming up short? Are you tired of feeling restricted and ready to ante up your web skills so you can finally do this design stuff yourself?

If you answered “yes” to any of these, then this is the Montreal Girl Geeks event you’ve been waiting for. When it comes to making your cookie-cutter web presence look exactly how you picture it in your mind’s eye, then you may be aware that HTML and CSS hold the key. No worries if you find the whole “learning to code” thing mildly terrifying – that’s where Amanda comes in. In this juicy session, she’ll show you how you can use HTML and CSS to create the blog or site of your dreams – in a totally accessible way.
