Wednesday Week 3

Welcome back

Programme Structure

Each week these workshops will give a brief introduction to the topic for the next two weeks

You’ll work on a project for each topic, initally on your own and then in pairs

  • Weeks 3 & 4: CSS layouts, architecture and variables
  • Weeks 5 & 6: Git pairing, code review, estimation, objects and advanced DOM
  • Weeks 7 & 8: Higher order functions, promises and fetch
  • Weeks 9 & 10: Testing
  • Weeks 11 & 12: Final project

Along the way, you’ll get experience:

  • Working with someone else asynchronously
  • Estimating how long it will take to build features
  • Handling user stories
  • Reviewing code

CSS Layouts

There are different methods for controlling layouts of web pages

  • Tables
  • Box model
  • CSS: Flex box
  • CSS: Grid

The box model

As Rachel Andrew has reminded us, everything in web design is a box, or the absence of a box… Layout is inevitably, therefore, the arrangement of boxes.

A two-dimensional layout composed of rows and columns separated by gutters.
