Why Learn HTML and CSS?
HTML is the foundation of all web pages. Without HTML, you wouldn’t be able to organize text or add images or videos to your web pages. HTML is the beginning of everything you need to know to create engaging web pages! CSS Works in tandem with HTML to ensure that your content looks good. You are in full control of what your web pages look like using these two.

Content and Overview
To take this course, you will need no prior knowledge of any programming language. The content of this course assumes no prior knowledge of programming or web development and will teach you how to setup up an environment to develop a website from scratch; all the way up to deploying it on the internet for the world to see.
This is a short course with just over 4 hours of content but smartly broken up to highlight a set of related activities based on each module in the application that is being built. We will also look at troubleshooting and debugging errors as we go along; implementing best practices; writing efficient logic and understanding why developers do things the way they do. Your knowledge will grow, step by step, throughout the course and you will be challenged to be the best you can be.
By the time you have finished the course, you will have moved around in Visual Studio Code and examined errors so much, that it will be second nature for you when working in the Web development environment. This will put your newly learned skills into practical use and impress your boss and coworkers.
The course is complete with working files hosted on GitHub, with the inclusion of some files to make it easier for you to replicate the code being demonstrated. You will be able to work alongside the author as you work through each lecture and will receive a verifiable certificate of completion upon finishing the course.
