Event Description

Welcome to MLH Localhost

Localhost is a great way to build your tech skills and hang out with the hacker community. If you'd like to attend the workshop all you need to do is register on this page and check the page again an hour before the event begins. You'll find the link to the Zoom as well as a bunch of resources for the workshop!

During this workshop, you’ll learn the structure and syntax of basic HTML and CSS. Participants will receive a skeleton of a portfolio website and will update the HTML to include information about themselves and edit the CSS to style and position elements on their page! Then, they’ll deploy their new website. Learning HTML and CSS is the first step toward building a personal website, becoming more technically fluent, or beginning a career in web development or design!

Rowan University IEEE, is a student branch of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers, made up of 50+ engineering students from Rowan University. Each year we host many professional and fun events including a hackathon, ProfHacks, which aims to foster a community of people from Rowan, other universities, high schools, and industry, who enjoy hacking, building projects, learning, and having fun. During the event, we host workshops so that beginners can get their feet wet in the world of hacking, and so that more experienced hackers can brush up on their skills.
