For the first workshop of the year, the format was mixed up a bit. The taught content was more or less the same but the output was to be an actual webpage based upon a theme surrounding internet phenomena.

Whilst the session was enjoyable and everyone made some fun sites, I felt that something was missing in terms of the structure and coherance of the workshop – I have some ideas for pushing this next time though!

LOG: This section is a place for regular updates, workshop documentation and other content.
RESOURCES: An Arena channel with useful links for both workshop participants and others.

Following the success of the first workshop, it made sense to run another in quick succession.
Once again, the aim was to create a digital business card using HTML and CSS. Here's a selection of some of the work created.
Participants — Megan B, Lucy G, George D, Tilda R, Simon F, Katie R, Rose A, Mike W, Toby K.
The first official run of the workshop. The idea was to teach the basics of the HTML and CSS languages by building a digital business card that they could then show off to their friends as a token of their new knowledge in code.
The response was overwhelmingly positive, it was clear that these were skills that a lot of people were interested in acquiring.
Participants — Phemie F, Eddie S, Will R, Holly M, Alex H, Jonny P, Jack F, James D, Paulius D, Sam M.
A session to test the efficiency of the workshop at my residence with some friends.
