Coming up next Tuesday, our third programming online workshop!
We’ll be continuing our study of
HTML, and introduce just a smidgen of
What you need:
You will need a laptop or desktop computer to participate in this particular course (although the materials we will create will be usable on phones, too). Unfortunately, the programming tools on phone-based browsers just aren’t usable yet.
I’ll be teaching with Mozilla Firefox, which is a great free browser with excellent built-in tools for experimenting with programming — please consider downloading it if you don’t use it, as it will make things that much easier. But Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Apple Safari should be okay too.

We use a fun video chat thing called Gather.town, here’s the link:
Last time we messed around with a little bit of HTML code and thinking about the idea of “marking up” content. This time we are going to move on to something with a bit more complicated structure: a basic interlinear gloss. We’ll talk about a few new ideas:
- A bit about how elements in the page are layed out — or “flow”
- If we have time we will discuss a bit about web fonts
I talked too much last time! This time there will be more “try it yourself” time. If anyone here with experience in web stuff would like to act as a group mentor, please let me know via message or a comment below! (Psst, @sunny , @rgriscom , @meaganvigus , @caro @ldg @aryaman … )
Everyone here already does all these things but just for the record
- Be nice
- No questions are bad questions
- Have fun
Looking forward to seeing you all there! Please feel free to leave a comment below if you like.
Gather.town is free up to 25 people — I doubt we will get anywhere near that number, but because it gets super expensive to upgrade to more people, we can’t ahve more attendees.
