Webtastic Websites

It’s been an age since I’ve written a post on my blog. I’m going to break the habit and be updating it far more regularly.

My last post mentioned I was running some workshops in December. They went really well. Two intense one day workshops. At the end, the attendees learnt HTML and CSS, and managed to publish their first websites, all written from scratch!

Here’s a few links:

I think they’re great, and a remarkable accomplishment after only a single day! You’ll notice how kitten obsessed we all are. Well actually, that’s mainly due to placekitten, an awesome website for random kitten images in all dimensions!

Many thanks to Kyle Drake for creating Neocities. It’s perfect for uploading content without learning about Git, FTP or web hosts (which would really have stretched the workshop!)

I’d also like to thank Remy Sharp for JS Bin which saved the day when the projector stopped working half way though my workshop. Using the live reload feature I was able to show code and output directly on the attendees screens. Magic!
