Session Date: Wednesday Jan 11, 2017
In this session we will introduce ourselves and learn more about the expectations of the class. We will review the syllabus, the schedule, honor code, and the tasks that will need to be completed by each student.
You will be invited to join the class blog at infotools.web.unc.edu.
Include in it at least the following:
Your post can be about anything. If possible, try to find an angle that makes it relevant to our course of study.
Posting on this blog will introduce you to the workings of the WordPress Content management system available for use to all students and faculty. However, we will spend very little time learning Wordpress in this class. Instead, we will focus on learning the basics of UNIX, HTML and CSS which will prove to be more profitable for you and may give you the confidence to adapt or build your own WordPress theme someday.
Sign up for at least two newsletters and send me a note and tell me which ones you subscribed to.
If you wish to sign up for a newsletter as an RSS feed instead of as an email service, do so.
Just tell me that you chose the RSS option.
Before we close out this session we will make sure you have a GitHub account set up and that you are able to set up a quick GitHub Web Page and learn a few Markdown basics.
