Pragmatic Web Design: Our new one day workshop
We are delighted to announce the first ever Viewport Industries workshop! Pragmatic Web Design is a one-day course hosted by us — Messrs Whitaker and Stocks — and aims to remove some of the myths surrounding modern web design, covering modern areas of practice such as:
- Responsive design: a pragmatic approach
- Tomorrow’s web type today: the possibilities of future-facing typographic enhancements
- Using jQuery to enhance the multi-platform experience
- WordPress skills for designers
- SASS and other essential tools for writing better CSS
- Collaborative workflow
- Code management and deployment
VI Workshops are designed to be intimate, unique, reasonably priced, and full of vaulable take-away tips for designers and front-end developers. We’ve both attended and run workshops in the past and wanted to try something a bit different. We’re limiting spaces to 25 — which keeps it cosy and allows everyone to get involved — and we’ve chosen a great venue for the day. We fell in love with it as soon as we saw it and we know you’ll feel the same.
Where? The School of Life
We host our workshops in The School of Life, a very cool little venue (co-owned by none other than Alain De Botton) just a few minutes’ walk from St. Pancras in the heart of London. Look at those amazing walls!
When? Monday 6th August
Our first ‘Pragmatic Web Design’ workshop will be on Monday 6th August. Registration and coffee will be from 9am for a 9.30 start. All being well we should be finished by 5-5.30. If you’d like to attend you can register now. (The second workshop on the same topic will be held on Monday 3rd December.)
How much? £199 + VAT
We know attending workshops can often be prohibitive, which is why we’ve decided to offer places for just £199 + VAT. This includes a full day’s workshop, light refreshments, and a delicious lunch at one of the great local restaurants around the corner. We’re sure a post-workshop beer or two will be enjoyed as well!
So join us for a full day of sharing, learning, and socialising! If you have any questions please feel free to drop a comment in below or alternatively please email Keir directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
