HTML and CSS: The Super Fun Beginner's Course
- You should be able to turn on a computer.
There are a lot of HTML and CSS courses out there. A lot. How do you choose the one that's right for you?
I made this course for you--the beginner; the person who has never touched a tag or seduced a selector. Heck, you can learn HTML and CSS even if you're new to computers.
Some "free" classes are actually disguised marketing devices to try to get you to purchase other content from the author(s). I assure you this class is the real deal. I genuinely want to help, and although I do offer paid classes, this one will always be free and good.
Sure, you could purchase one of the more popular courses that has hours and hours of video and 30 or 45 lectures. And, in fact, I encourage you to do so after you take this course. This course is the starting place for all the other web development courses out there.
How can HTML and CSS help you?
Yeah, there are a lot of "drag 'n drop" website creators out there. But behind them all are HTML and CSS, and knowing how HTML and CSS works can be immensely valuable to you.
After you complete this course, you will be able to make your own website using only Notepad or TextEdit (or a text editor of your choice)! You'll also be able to manipulate existing code in Wordpress, Drupal, and Joomla sites.
You can also feel confident in taking a more advanced web design course.
