HTML & CSS for campaigners and fundraisers (21st Sept)


Have you ever wrestled with an email or a web page that just won't display how you want it? This usually seems to happen half an hour before a deadline, doesn't it? Understanding the code that underlies emails and web pages is crucial for the sanity of any digital campaigner or fundraiser.

This day-long course will teach you everything you need to know to get started and impress your team.

HTML and CSS for digital and campaigners and fundraisers (26th May)

In the mellow, quiet surroundings of London's former Olympic Village you will be able to calm your coding fears. You'll get personal hands-on tuition directly from me. I have been wrestling web pages into submission since 1997 and have taught HTML and CSS to postgraduate level students and on Campaign Bootcamp.

You will finish the day with a sense of relief and excitement that you too can code. 

The course is aimed at digital campaigners and fundraisers who have reasonable computer skills but have done little to no coding in recent years. All ages, ethnicities, orientations, genders and levels of patience welcome!

I can cater for all types of dietary requirements - just ask. The venue is accessible to those using wheelchairs but without assistance bars in the bathroom and sadly has no automatic doors.
