Web Dev Weekend
If you are viewing this site, chances are it is Saturday, April 9th, 2016 and you are attending Dzgn.IO’s Web Development Workshop. If not, welcome strange visitors! This also means you’ve taken the leap and have decided that you want to create your own website - YESS!! We’re here to help!
This workshop will cover the basics of programming in HTML and CSS. We will then turn up the heat and discuss templating webpages with Jekyll.
You can view the presentation HERE for reference.
Skills We’ll Learn
- Setting up your development environment
- HTML & CSS
- Using Jekyll
Your Dev Environment
…is sacred - preach.
Jokes aside, your development environment will take some preparation. For our workshop, we will be setting everyone up with Brackets, an open source text editor, and Jekyll, the Ruby-based gem.
Visit brackets.io to view the brackets project site. Please download the most recent version of Brackets with or without Extract.
Installing Git (Windows Only)
Download and install this version of Git for Windows. Do not change any options on the installer - the defaults are the ideal settings.
Jekyll runs on the Ruby programming language. Both Windows and Mac users will need to install Ruby, but the process is quite different depending on your OS.
