HTML and CSS are the backbone to every website, and are equally as important as any design or development. In this workshop you will learn how to write modular HTML and CSS, and how reuse code to build maintainable websites. After spending some time playing with legos and writing some of code attendees will be able to better organize their code, develop modular styles, and work with CSS specificity.
