Welcome to the "Build a Website in an Hour" event! In this event, you are challenged to create a website from scratch in an hour. At the start of the meeting, we will do a round of introductions, then we will put one hour on the clock in which we can all build a website.
Use this time as an opportunity to exercise your creativity muscles. Build whatever interests you!
You can use whatever technologies (and frameworks) you want, but you cannot work on an existing project. You have to start from scratch and build what you make in the hour. You can re-use work from projects you have made before.
You don't have to write any code! We encourage you to use a tool like WordPress, micro.blog, or another website builder if you want to set up a website without code.
After the hour is up, we will share what we have built with each other. Everyone will have a few minutes to present their website. The exact time will vary depending on how many participants we have.
Don't have an idea yet? Here are a few to help inspire you:
- Create a blog
- Build a web page on a topic you are passionate about
- Create instructions on how to do something (make a cake, build a website)
- Create an animation with CSS
- Create a tool for displaying microformats data on a page
