This course is designed for people who have little to no HTML/CSS knowledge but want to build their first website in a week. It will guide you through the process step-by-step, and by the time you are finished, you’ll feel comfortable enough to design your own websites using all of these skills.
If you are already familiar with HTML and CSS, you can still find value in this course. The first three lessons are a crash course in HTML5 and CSS3, which will bring you up to speed on the latest changes in these technologies. After that, we’ll be working on a real-world project: building a website from scratch.
What is HTML?
HTML is the language of the web. It’s what we use to create the structure of our websites—the headings, paragraphs, images, etc. Here’s a basic HTML document:
The HTML document contains three parts: the doctype, the HTML tags, and the body content. The doctype tells the web browser which version of HTML to use.
The HTML tags define the structure of the document, and the body content is what will be displayed on the page.
What is CSS?
CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, is the language of the web designer. It allows us to define how a page looks—fonts, colors, backgrounds, etc.—without affecting how it functions.
Without CSS, every website would have no style, and would just be a wall of text in a browser.
Features of CSS3?
CSS3 has a ton of new features, but here are just a few:
- border-radius: allows you to create rounded corners without using images
- transitions and animations: create smooth animations between different states
- multi-column layout: create pages with multiple columns of text
- media queries: use different CSS styles depending on the width or height of the browser window
In this course, we’ll be using HTML5 and CSS3 to build a website from scratch. The first three lessons are a crash course in these technologies so that you can get up to speed on the latest changes. After that, we’ll be working on a real-world project: building a website from scratch.
