The foundation to every website begins with it's presentation. HTML and CSS are the lowest level components to begin web development. If you want to do any type of web development it's crucial you master these skills. It may surprise you, it's not that difficult!
I will pave the ground work to begin building websites. HTML and CSS won't take you long to learn, but it will require practice to master.
I've never met anyone that has learned HTML and CSS and regretted it. It's the #1 starting point to learning web development.
This course is structured chronologically so that you can follow along and build code with me. There are no surprises or mystery code! it's meant for you to do as I do to get practice and understanding down.
This course takes around a 2 weeks to complete at an average pace. It will take about a month to become fluent in HTML and CSS if you practice.
Careers: If you can write HTML/CSS It's always something to add to your resume because it adds value. In fact, if you were good at Photoshop and laying out designs, you could become an official front-end developer too!
Misc: You can also use HTML/CSS in thousands of places on the internet, from Ebay Listings, Craigslist Ads, CMS Systems (Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal), or create a Template and sell it online.
Finalize our journey with a few notes!
My name is Jesse.
I was born in Michigan, but I've been living in Central Florida the past 10 years.
I've been programming since I was 12. Beginning with QBasic in school, IRC Scripting at home, and HTML in Netscape Navigator on weekends. In those days I had to "View Source" to figure out how to do anything! I wrote my first website at this age using the GeoCities free websites. I then moved to AngelFire for a while. Remember those days?
When I hit 20, I spent several years freelancing with the skills I picked up from terribly long nights of studying. Freelancing was difficult for me because being a salesman wasn't in my blood, but I enjoyed the coding parts! I primarily used Linux, PHP, MySQL, and CSS. Then jQuery a bit later.
These days I live in the corporate world. I work with a small team of people and I enjoy it. I'm doing all sort of things from building solid back-ends, REST API's, HTML5/JS games, Python Django, and sometimes a bit of monkey work.
I enjoy explaining programming not because I like to talk, but because I find it rewarding to help people along their way. In fact, I found it so rewarding that I created a Youtube channel with hundreds of videos covering programming topics.
I hope you can benefit from my years of learning, I try to present it in a simple way so you don't need wrestle with all the questions I had!
