Time to Boost your Website with Robin Kay

This course takes place in person on 9th December 2021, 11th January and 20th January 2022 – This is a Live Event at Millennium Point in a safe and clean environment.

Extended deadline: Apply no later than 5pm on Monday 29th November 2021, numbers are limited.

With the emergence of ‘drag and drop’ website creation applications, the ability to create websites that exactly meet the expectations of SMEs and creatives in look and feel has diminished.

This series of three workshops focuses on the basics of hand-coded website creation with a ground-up approach to understanding web coding.

The first session will explore HTML coding and its role in establishing the layout, navigation and placement of content. We will then progress to CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and learn how to position and style the web pages to make them appealing to users and encourage engagement. The third and final session will focus on responsive website design and user device considerations.

The ability to understand how websites are created and what the code ‘does’ will broaden the creative possibilities of your website creation and enhance the user’s engagement with your content.

To get the most out of these sessions, we recommend you attend all 3 events to develop a strong website.

You will need access to your own laptop/computer for the session.
