Week 2: HTML and CSS Basics; Résumé Workshop

In order to complete your homework, you should download and install one of the following programs on your own computer:

If you have any questions about our plans for next week, please send me an email or contact me on Twitter. Otherwise, I’ll see you in class on Monday!
