This course will take you 1 hour to complete and is for people with no-prior technical experience who want to learn HTML & CSS. Unlike other courses for people with no experience this is entirely hands-on material and by the end of the course you will have built a beautiful splash page that showcases why you are awesome.

If you want to have a sneak-peak at what you'll be building, it will look like this (but you'll be able to incorporate your own creative energy to give the page a look and feel that you think showcases your personality).The course is perfect for someone with no prior experience coding, but who wants to start learning about web technologies.

After the course is done, you will have built an awesome looking page using HTML, CSS and also have setup your computer to have the tools you need to build web pages, so you'll be able to continue to build other web pages after the course is over.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who wants to get their feet wet & hands dirty building a simple, attractive splash page
