Learn to Create Responsive HTML/CSS Emails
Due to the coronavirus, we are offering our workshops remotely until further notice. We are excited to continue to provide opportunities to build your tech skills during this uncertain time.
You used your HTML/CSS prowess and built an email but it breaks in mobile, or Gmail, or Outlook. Don’t throw your computer against the wall just yet. Coding for emails is it’s own beast. Engineering that builds off the basics of HTML/CSS front-end design, but has its own set of specific guidelines.
This workshop aims to give attendees the basics of what is different -and the same -about coding for email. At the end of the day, you will walk out the door with a custom, stable template designed and tested yourself, and with more insight as to just how email design and coding works.
