If you’re looking to start a career in HTML & CSS coding, but don’t know where to begin, this might be for you. This course is aimed at absolute beginners that have never done any coding before. Early on in the course, you’ll learn what coding is, what certain types of languages are used for, specifically HTML & CSS, and the types of careers available through learning HTML & CSS.
Learn why programming is important.
What is HTML & CSS?
HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) are two of the core technologies for building web pages. HTML provides the structure of web pages, whereas CSS typically provides the visual layout. Put simply, HTML is behind the the basic layout of the web page. Whereas CSS takes care of the style and presentation of the information on the web page. Combined together, they form the backbone of most web pages. Additional coding layers are then added to bring these web pages to life or create enhanced functionality. This might include adding interactive maps, animated 2D and 3D graphics, and special effects.
How does this course work?
The course is comprised of two main parts, which are self-paced. In part one, you’ll learn the foundations of coding. By the end of the first few lessons, you’ll be able to understand programming, write basic code, grasp programming concepts, think like a programmer, understand the tools in coding, have a better idea of careers available in coding, and gain practical experience by creating portfolio-worthy projects. In part two, you’ll complete the courses specific to HTML & CSS in preparation to sit the final exam to gain your certification.
