On National Learn to Code Day, I decided to take the Ladies Learning Code Introduction to HTML & CSS course. We created a minimal one page website to kickstart our journey into web design.

We learned about popular web design techniques like the fixed header and fixed background image. I used a CSS3 effect on portfolio thumbnail rollovers, turning them from a black and white CSS filter back to their original state. I also used CSS to turn my rectangular thumbnail images to circles. I got some help from one of the many mentors to create my colourful social media rollover. Since it was not possible to achieve using CSS he showed me how using jQuery.
