You must be anxious to dive into the wonderful world of web programming. But the first thing we want you to do has sadly / luckily nothing to do with code. The Citywalk will combine the knowledge you will get from the first tutorials. Read on to find out how exactly you are going to do that.
You must go out in the city of Amsterdam and follow one of the two routes below. If you want, you can also follow both routes, but that's up to you. While you are taking your walk, take pictures of things you think are interesting; as many as you like. The purpose of this odd request is to encourage you to make content, which you are going to use in this and later assignments.
Take a lot of pictures!
The next step is to build a simple html page and make it look nice with some css. You're going to use the knowledge you've attained or will attain in the HTML and CSS tutorials. We want you to build a site with the content you just created!
Use at least five of the photos you have taken during your city walk accompanied by a short explanation on why you took them.
Create a valid HTML file with the necessary tags. Think of the main HTML structure like html, head and body, but also the p tags and img tags and everything else described on the tutorial pages.
For this assignment its best to create a CSS stylesheet in the head of your document.
Of course we want to see as well what you've done. So you'd better publish it!
Upload your code to Github gists. Make sure you do not post it anonymously!
Make sure the images are available online as well. You can use a basic image host like Flickr or tinypic.com.
