Week 9: Wrapping Up the Responsive Microsite Project

Quinn WarnickWeekly Updates

At this point in the Unit #2 project, your responsive microsite should be almost complete, and you should be working to customize the text, images, and CSS so the site looks like your site, not just another “default” Bootstrap site. The long list of Bootstrap tools on the Resources page will help you create and modify the theme, pages, and components for your site.

Your websites are due on Tuesday, March 31, so next week we will work on fine tuning the content of your sites. Here’s how we’ll spend our time in class:

  • On Tuesday, we will focus on revising the text on your sites. You should have a complete, functional website before you come to class. In preparation for our discussion, please read Chapters 4–6 in Nicely Said and bring that book to class.
  • On Thursday, we will spend most of our time in a peer-critique workshop. A draft of your Unit #2 site should be finished and uploaded to your personal domain before you come to class. This workshop will help you iron out any final wrinkles in the design and functionality of your site. After our workshop, we will discuss our next big project and prepare for our first meeting with our clients.

Good luck building and refining your Unit #2 website this weekend! If you have any questions along the way, please let me know.
