I am giving a 4 days workshop HTML / Webdesign in July in a beautiful small town in Austria. The workshop will focus on learning the basics for making a website. It will start with an introduction to HTML and then explore different possibilities to create your own website. Part of the workshop will be outside (away from the computer), collecting material, which can then be used for making a web page.
The information about the workshop is all in german. But if more people sign up who don't speak german, I will do the workshop in two languages, german and english.
Click here for more information about the workshop
The workshop is especially for people who have only very little experience with HTML and webdesign. I will start completely at the beginning on how to make a website. These two pages will give a good impression on how the workshop will start:
If you would like to take part in the workshop, but don't understand the german form to signup, then contact me here for more information.
And feel free to forward this information to anyone you think might be interested.
