Assignment 1: Introductory Web Site

Due: Sunday, September 22nd , by 5pm

Assignment Description:

Create a new web directory in your grace account (I suggest naming it 409) for your assignments, and place in that directory an index.html page from which you will link all subsequent assignments.

The page must include a picture of yourself, your name, and your preferred e-mail address (the one you check most often, and would like me to use). Do your best to use the principles of design you learned in 320; I want to see the best you can do (that does not mean putting in every type of bell and whistle you can imagine; keep it simple and clean.)

E-mail its URL--the full URL, please, complete with the http:// prefix--to the FirstClass conference for this course. (If it doesn't show up in the conference, it won't count as turned in.) You only need to send the URL for this page, however--future assignments will just be linked from the first one.
