CodePen & Challenges

CodePen is a front-end "playground" for Web designers. It is an online IDE (integrated development environment) that helps you focus on solving HTML & CSS design challenges big and small. CodePen will be used in a variety of ways in this course, including in-class demonstrations, sharing of code samples, and for Challenges.

At the beginning of the term, sign up for a free CodePen account, and learn the basics of the service. Figure out how to work with it's multi-panel interface, and to link directly to specific Pens.

All assigned Challenges must be turned in using CodePen.

Videos

The course calendar links to a number of videos related to our discussion in class. These are given by influential Web designers and developers that are working to push CSS and HTML forward. The videos are required viewing and are considered part of the hybrid component of this course. Their content is fair game for test questions.
