Crafting Custom CSS

Track this Session

“Custom CSS” is often touted as a feature for blogging and website services like WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger, and Squarespace. But a blank code editor can be a daunting thing for non-coders. Where do you even begin?

We’re going to tackle that problem in this session. We’ll explore the fundamentals of HTML & CSS, the building blocks of the web. You’ll learn how to use your browser to inspect page code, and how to write basic CSS to customize the look and feel of your blog or website.

Q: I heard PodCamp Toronto is an “unconference.” What the heck is that?!

An uncon­fer­ence is a facil­i­tated, participant-driven event cen­tred on a theme or pur­pose (in this case, podcasting and various forms of digital media). Because we’re an unconference, we encourage our participants to exercise the “Law of Two Feet” (see next Q)
