Course Description

Learn the basic concepts, tools, and functions that you will need to build beautiful and modern websites using HTML5 & CSS3.

Build a strong foundation in HTML and CSS with this tutorial for beginners.

A Powerful Skill at Your Fingertips
Learning the fundamentals of HTML5 & CSS3 puts a powerful and very useful tool at your fingertips. HTML & CSS are free, easy to learn, has excellent documentation, and is the base for all things on the web. .

When I am asked: Where should I start if I want to learn programming? My response is always HTML and CSS. Have you ever wanted to dive further into Wordpress themes? Have you ever wanted to create a beautiful HTML email? Or maybe you just want to be able to design websites. This course is the place to start.

Content and Overview

Suitable for beginning programmers, through this course of 56 lectures and 6 hours of content, you’ll start by downloading a text editor and coding in HTML. Random lectures have specific "challenges" sprinkled in.

After creating some basic web pages and learning about HTML syntax we will go over the differences and changes in HTML 5.(Todays standard)

With the basics of HTML established, we will begin to dive into the world of cascading style sheets.(CSS) We can supercharge our learning by tackling both at the same time.

Finally, we take the course into "project mode." We will go step by step, line by line, and code our own modern and beautiful website using CSS3 and HTML5.


This course was created to establish a foundation in programming by learning HTML5 and CSS3. These are the building blocks of all websites.

Instructor Biography

Andrew Eddy, Graphic Designer, Entrepreneur, & Instructor

I am a graphic designer, entrepreneur, and lead instructor at the Academy X design school. I am passionate about working with startups and have launched several successful businesses. Learn how to design from my "jump right in" teaching style.

"I am a nerd. I love everything technology, and making the virtual world a more beautiful place is my passion." -Andrew

I currently live in Atlanta, where I am the CEO of a security software company. I began designing mobile applications and websites in college. UX/UI design came so naturally that, I knew it was the career for me. I like to say I am a Economics major with a computer science addiction. I won the College of Charleston Entrepreneur of the Year award when I was a senior in college.

I have worked as a graphic designer for an array of different size companies from startups, all the way to fortune five hundred companies such as Coca-Cola.

I have experience designing logos, branding, UI design, UX research, rapid prototyping, and web development.

I have been a freelance web developer since 2009 and have contributed countless beautiful websites to the internet.

I have served as the creative director for an emerging financial technology startup.

I have served as a UI designer for a non profit, SPLASSH, a company that crowdsources projects about the way we consume information about water.

My motto is to teach by doing. In my courses, you will jump right into the subject and learn to design by actually designing. Recreating app designs and learning as you go is the best way to learn in my opinion.

My goal is to give my students the ability to change their career with the skills they learn in my classes.
