Sept. 15th: Beginners’ class. If you have never had any experience with uploading and downloading files, using a remote server, or structuring directories and organizing files, this is for you. If you are already familiar with SSH Secure Shell or other FTP-like programs, up/down-loading, and file structures, go ahead and join us for the next session. The main goal of this session is to activate your UH-created homepage, so if you skip this session, please do this on your own. (see http://www.hawaii.edu/personalhp)
Sept 22nd: Basic HTML. In this class we start teaching the basics of HTML programming. HTML is the language used to tell the browser how you want your webpage to look - we teach you useful commands to set up a basic webpage.
Oct. 6th: Basic CSS. In this class we start teaching the basics of using CSS for styling your webpage. “Styling” means adding colors, doing different sizing, and doing the layout of the page. By the end of this class you will know how to change things like the colors and fonts of your page.
Oct. 13th: Advanced CSS. Nowadays, CSS is used to do the layout of a page - that means not only how things look, but where they go on the page. In this class, you will learn all about “positioning” and page layout techniques.
You can find out more about the workshops on our webpage,
The Workshops are offered to all LIS students to learn how to make a webpage in order to put their Resume or Curriculum Vitae online (i.e. ePortfolio) - so please come on by.
The ICS Department is teaming up with the College of Engineering to host the Engineering Career Fair held on Friday, Oct 12 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. This fair is attended by a wide variety of high tech firms interested in employing students who have your skills.
During this time, the College of Engineering will be giving those employers a CD containing the resumes of students interested in employment as well as internships. They are very generous to offer us the opportunity to include your resume on this CD. If you want to be included, I will need your resume in a MS Word format by September 17th. Please email them to me by that date as an attached file.
