This course is the equivalent of a 3 semester-hour college course on Web Design, without all the nasty tests. This course will introduce you to the basics of HTML5 markup so you can create a website with forms, images, responsive navigation, etc. Because the course does not rely on a specific WYSIWYG code editor, you will also understand what each line of HTML markup and CSS does. This is essential so that later when you start using a WYSIWYG code editor and you need to make changes, you know what is going on under the hood.
In addition to the video screencasts, this course includes a start file for each unit and a completed example so you can see the code in action.
This course contains 8 units, each of which build on the previous unit. By the end you will have a fully functional website.
Who this course is for:
- This course is designed for beginners who want to understand what the code does and how to solve problems.
