As coding and web-development becomes increasingly essential to our day-to-day lives, ranging from significant professional practices down to personal blog spaces and websites, the idea of personally building and designing a website becomes more and more desirable. Unfortunately, finding a mix of the right tools and drive can be challenging, and leaves a lot of potential coders overwhelmed in the face of programs without concrete results.
In this course we'll be facilitating these very essential concrete results.
By introducing and breaking down HTML and CSS in a practical, functional manner, you'll see the direct results of better understanding the basic building blocks of almost any website. This course is perfect for beginners, as it aims to remove overly technical details in favour of result oriented understanding.
We'll be developing a fully functional and presentable blog. In doing so we'll highlight the common elements of HTML to structure a page, and CSS to stylize it.
You will also learn how to: Implement Bootstrap with HTML templates, build a web application with Ruby on Rails, and deploy your application with Heroku.
Hopefully the tangible output provided will give you the momentum you need to continue to pursue valuable coding skills!
I’m a self-taught web developer and veterinarian. I want to use technology to make veterinary medicine more efficient.
Building something and watching it succeed is extremely gratifying. I’m here to teach you some of today’s most in demand skills. I want you to experience the joy of building something from nothing.
My background: I have been coding for 9 years. I was first motivated to learn how to program because I wanted to build a super Mario bros fan site. It was a simple static HTML and CSS website. Although that website never got traction my interest in coding did.
In high school, a friend showed me how to build dynamic websites with a PHP framework. I grew frustrated with PHP because the community was fragmented between many frameworks.
In university I saw a video where a developer makes a blog with Django, in 15 minutes. I loved the fact that Django is quick and powerful.I love Django because it has a english like syntax and a strong community of developers. After becoming comfortable developing with Django, I volunteered to build websites for friends and family. Eventually I was referred to my first paying client.
