About This Course
HTML and CSS are markup languages and the building blocks that make up the web. This course will teach you how to use them, but also much more than that. It is called "Not your Typical Intro..." because it does not follow the usual pattern of other courses and tutorials that you find on the Internet. Usually HTML and CSS is taught with a focus on language syntax. But knowing syntax alone does not enable you to create a webpage from a design. You need to know where to start and how to approach the task, in other words - you need to learn how to think like a front-end developer. In this course you will learn how to convert digital design mockups into static web pages. We will teach you how to approach page layout, how to break down a design mockup into page elements, and how to implement that in HTML and CSS. You will also learn about responsive design techniques, which are increasingly important in a world where mobile devices and TV screens are used more and more often to look for information and entertainment.
