A website is like a book, just because it looks good on the outside doesn't mean it is well written, constructed and interesting.
In this workshop, you'll learn some of the best practices for SEO (search engine optimization), site structure, page construction, and overall site design. The goal - a great overall experience for your users and value added to your website.
Students must bring a laptop computer (PC or Mac) to class.
This is a follow-up workshop to Introduction to Web Design, however, it is not required that you completed that workshop before attending Best Practices & Principles of Web Design.
Students must bring a laptop computer (PC or Mac) to class. If you do not have a laptop, contact Michael Mengers (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve a loaner for use during the workshop.
All other worskhop materials will be provided.
