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’ll be coming to PodCamp Toronto by car, is there parking?

Parking is not provided on-site, though there are several paid lots and some street parking available in the immediate area. Heated underground parking is available directly across Gould Street underneath the Metro grocery store. To access it, come north from Dundas up Dalhousie Street (one way) and the entrance to the garage will be on your right just before you get to Gould.
