Intro to Front End Web Development: A Beginner’s HTML + CSS Workshop

Join AIGA Central PA and the Lancaster Front-End Meetup for a hands-on workshop on the essentials of front-end development. Together, we will help beginners get up and running with HTML and CSS basics. Bring your laptop and your thinking hat and get ready to dive into practical front-end knowledge!

This workshop is geared towards those with little or no experience in web design or development, but with an interest in getting your hands into a little bit of code. Participants will leave with an understanding of HTML and CSS, the knowledge needed to build and style a basic website, and resources to help you along the way as you continue to learn front-end web development.

From now until September 14th, AIGA Central PA will be offering the chance for it's members to apply for the Diversity in Design Event Scholarship. For more information check out the link or contact our President, Bri Piccari at
