Modern Web Dev Workshop

 
A couple of us front-end developers here at Planet Argon, a local design and dev studio, are in the process of creating a workshop tentatively titled "Modern Web Development - an Intro to Github, SCSS, Bootstrap, and Jekyll.” The objective of the workshop will be to build and launch a simple but elegant site within a day, while, in the process, exploring a bunch of free / open source tools and some fancy new web dev techniques. We think that this workshop will be valuable for students with at least a basic understanding of HTML/CSS (and there will definitely be a student discount), new designers/developers looking to build their skills, coders who might not have kept up with all the latest front-end goodies, and even tech-savvy entrepreneurs eager to leave a workshop with a live prototype and the skills required to realize their vision.

We’d greatly appreciate if you’d take a minute to answer the survey questions below- this will help ensure that we’re tailoring this and future workshops to the interests of the community. Thanks so much!
