Following up on our announcement of a new web development class for entrepreneurs & open dev night that will start next Monday, Jan 17th 7pm at Cortona - the first tutorial for students to complete before they come can be found here:
This is the first of 23 tutorials that will be rolled out over 2011 to help introduce web development to entrepreneurs. These tutorials will be published about a week before the corresponding free in-person class that will be held at Cortona Cafe in Seattle, WA on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month starting at 7pm. If you're in the area, come on by any time during the year. If not, feel free to follow along online.
While there are a ton of tutorials out there on every topic we'll be introducing this year, our angle will be to stick with the "give me the general concepts" and "let's just get this rolling" essentials and allow you figure out the details on your own (we'll point you to resources & other tutorials out there). We'll be tailoring the class to high-school students who would call themselves reasonably "good with computers" but may have little to no programming experience. However, even if you are 80 years old with decades of programming experience, we're hoping these tutorials will still be helpful to spark an entrepreneurial spirit and/or bring you up to speed on HTML5, CSS3, Rails3, etc....

Students are encouraged to work on the tutorial before coming to the class. However, if you get stuck somewhere in the tutorial or aren't able to work on it - feel free to show up and a web developer from the community will be there to help you out.
