HTML and CSS are the web's basic building blocks. In mastering these two languages, developers will take their first steps in the incredibly dynamic field of front-end software development.

This hands-on course will cover HTML5 and CSS by having participants integrate an actual design. Participants will learn the fundamentals then quickly move on to using HTML's semantic elements to structure content and CSS to style them. They'll learn about CSS' good and bad parts, the flex-box model for layout and animations. Finally, participants will get to apply responsive design techniques, learn about progressive enhancement and work with CSS frameworks.
