Learn how to build a responsive website from scratch!
I'm an instructor at Steer - code school based in London. At Steer, we believe in project-based learning and design-led programming courses. This course is suitable for complete beginners to code.
On the course I’ll lead you through each step needed to create beautiful, bespoke websites of your own.
You’ll build a single column site that'll introduce you to the basics of HTML. Together we’ll look at elements like html, head, body & section, and work out where each of these should be used to correctly structure your content.
Once we’ve covered all of that we'll move on to CSS, looking at selectors, classes, properties and more.
Finally we'll look at making your site responsive - showing you how to make sites look good across different screen sizes.
By the end of this course you'll have a beautiful food-blog style site which you can use as a template for your own projects. This course will ensure you have all the knowledge you need to take your first steps as a web developer.

I like to eat it layered with yogurt, fruit compote, pistachios and pomegranate (I love coconut yogurt but any thick style yogurt is great). The joy of having delicious homemade granola on tap is that it acts as the perfect base to add the topping of your[...]
This braised pork with thickened soy gravy and pak choi is the perfect fit if you are craving comfort food. For this recipe I used flat noodles, perfect for soaking up all that delicious gravy, but if they’re not your bag then you can easily substitute in something else. This dish is rich and warming whilst remaining fresh tasting, thanks to the pak [...]
This warm pan fried rainbow trout & fennel pasta salad has the benefit of looking
luxurious and tasting amazing whilst being quick and easy to make. In this specific
instance, I used Mafaldine pasta which looks beautiful on a plate but it tastes just as
good with other pasta shapes. This is a great one, ideal for a midweek pick-me-up or
