This course is 100% project driven and teaches you how to build a professional website WHILE teaching the core HTML and CSS concepts along the way.
Hi and welcome to the HTML5 & CSS Professional Development course, where we’ll walk through the same course I teach code bootcamp students around the world. My name is Jordan Hudgens, and I’ll be your instructor for the course. In addition to being the lead instructor for devCamp I’ve also been building web applications for over a decade for organizations such as Eventbrite and Quip.
In this course, you’re going to learn all of the key skills that you’re going to need in order to start building out professional websites. Before building this new course out, I interviewed hiring managers at companies around the world and asked them what HTML/CSS skills they expected developers to know and that’s how I came up with the list of concepts that you’re going to learn.
Some of the skills that you’re going to learn are going to be:
- CSS Grid
- Media queries for building responsive layouts from scratch
- CSS Selectors
- How to integrate and style images
- Front end development best practices
- And much more!
As we go through the course material, you’ll notice that I’m going to teach you my own process that I use whenever I’m building out a website.
My goal for this entire course isn’t just to teach you how to build a single website, but instead my goal is to be able to leverage this project build that we’re going to put together, teach you the fundamentals as we implement every single feature, and then by the end of it, you’re not just going to be able to build the single website and follow along with what I do, but you’ll be able to build any type of website.
There are no technical prerequisites for going through this course. This is the perfect course to go through if you want to learn how to build websites completely from scratch.
The ideal student is someone who is dedicated, wants to learn, and also wants to learn how to build websites using the most modern and up to date technologies. So, thank you for spending the time and going through this material, and good luck with the coding.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone interested in learning what it takes to build websites with HTML and CSS
