Digital Humanities Research Institute: Binghamton 2019



This session will introduce attendees to two core skills for building websites: HTML (a markup language) and CSS (a style sheet language). Both are commonly-used for rendering information on the web today. In addition to learning the basics and basic differences of HTML and CSS, attendees will use a simple text editor (Sublime Text 3) and their computers to begin creating a website.

Example and Practice

We will start with a demo of a completed html website and viewing its changes as CSS rules are added to the page. 

Next, we will follow CUNY DHRI's guide for building a basic website here: DHRI Curriculum/html-css
