1:05 A/B Day – Project for Week 9
This is the last class day to work on the Halloween themed website. House it in your Week 9 folder. Reintroducing yourself to HTML and CSS is your primary focus. Good clean commented and validated code.
The specifics: Create a two page Halloween website. It could include scary stories, a collection of carving templates, information about costumes, a guide for planning a Halloween party, tips or steps to creating your own costume, recipes for Halloween cookies you get the idea…. Must haves:
- Two Pages, using the following tags at least once:
- <head> tag with meta data
- <figure> and <figcaption>
- <a> (anchor link to something)
Some Tips to help you: Brainstorm and collect ideas, create a KanBan board to identify your “to do” list, sketch out a quick wireframe, write all your content and collect your assets first, design and code last.
Keep this simple!
Stay Organized: Create a folder inside Week 9 for this website. Call it Halloween. Inside that folder create one for images and one for your CSS stylesheet. Your .html pages will be inside this Halloween folder.
Mr. B’s Workflow – I like to work off my desktop first, building all my folders and collecting all my assets and materials. CSS goes in the CSS folder. Images go in the Images folder. .html pages go in the root folder.
I then upload the entire Halloween folder at the end of the day. But hey, that’s me and my workflow. You may be different or have a better way.
If you need help, consult with W3 schools. Amazing resource to help you with your HTML coding. Do not use any templates, write your own code. Ask me for help. Use comments, that can be helpful to understanding your code.
