Learn why programming is important.
What is HTML and 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 HTML and CSS coding. In part two, you’ll prepare to sit the final exam to gain your Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certification. The title of the certification you’ll gain is the MTA: Introduction to Programming Using HTML and CSS. You can see an example of this certification by scrolling further down the page.

What will I learn from this course?
HTML is the foundation behind all web pages. It’s used to add structure and form to text, images, and more. CSS is the language used to style HTML content. Through this course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of both languages providing you with the skills to create visually appealing web pages.
By the end of part one of this course, you’ll be able to understand coding in general, write basic code, grasp coding concepts, think like a HTML and CSS Developer, understand the tools in coding, have a better idea of careers available in HTML and CSS coding, and gain practical experience by creating portfolio-worthy projects.
