Class Description

This class was AMAZING!
Web student

HTML and CSS are used on the web, of course, but also in e-books and some apps. Whether your intent is to customize web site designs, perfect quirky ePubs, or just communicating with those who do, being familiar with these languages is essential. In this class, we focus on the current and now widely-supported standards of HTML5 and CSS3, so you'll be up-to-date with your knowledge.

We'll also take a brief, gentle peek at other technologies like PHP and JavaScript, so you'll be aware of their roles, too. We'll talk about the parts played by site-building apps like Muse, Dreamweaver and others.
