Hi @tran2 and @koda521, do you want to modify the platform-client (the site users see) or the API backend (called 'platform')?

@cmacdonell I would like to start with changing the style (HTML,CSS), so the platform-client I guess

To what extent have you worked with HTML/CSS before?

Advanced knowledge, I would say. Why?

Ushahidi organizes its CSS with Sass (http://sass-lang.com/) and are in the sass/ directory in platform-client. The HTML templates are spread throughout the app/ directory depending on the view you're wanting to modify.
I'd suggest getting platform-client up and running and then start playing around with it. That is how I would get started.
