I just completed the course and i feel like a Code rockstar - seeing the pages that i can create in a matter of minutes with CONFIDENCE and KNOW-HOW. This tutorial series is the real deal! It's from the actual organization responsible for Web standards! You are going to learn how to write code that is stable, standard and untouchable - No one can talk trash about the code i write, because it's actually from the source W3C (Not to be confused with W3S!) Do not hesitate and enroll TODAY! Do not look any further to start your self-learning path! I previously signed up to an on-line bootcamp and paid the 1st $1500 monthly fee to begin. (Crazy) The 1st portion of their course (really just a tutorial) was on HTML & CSS3 - Their lessons provided Zero background, zero context, zero depth!

(Crazy) The 1st portion of their course (really just a tutorial) was on HTML & CSS3 - Their lessons provided Zero background, zero context, zero depth! I found myself scouring the internet for hours for information to understand the WHY behind the concepts that they just kept hurling at you in every paragraph without any background information or context. This is when i came across the W3C course on EDX - Skeptical at first - of course, i was still enrolled in a bootcamp that i had to search Google to learn what i paid them to learn! (you can't make this stuff up) - I signed up, "hey it was free so why not" i said. I figured i'd at least learn what i was stuck on in the bootcamp here, and get back to continue the bootcamp. BUT NO WAY!! - from the very first day I began to learn, "best practices", The why behind this, the when behind that! embedding video, iframes, images, embedding audio, Intel's XDK platform, I learned how to test my code, what semantically written HTML meant and why it's used and FLEXBOX!. And i can go on forever! I cancelled my bootcamp subscription but still lost my $1500 - DO NOT make the same mistake i made - Take this course! leaving that bootcamp was the BEST and most expensive lesson I have ever learned. I'm signing up to the other two courses as well - i feel confident that they'll be just as thorough as well - Best of luck!

In a few short months I have gone from complete novice to having the knowledge to build a webpage from scratch and play around with the design and responsiveness! The course was easy to follow and totally covers the fundamentals, plus extras. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to get started with web development!

I think that the course offer the chance to learn many aspects of HTML and CSS. The instructors are very competent. The only thing I would change is to offer more explanation through videos, especially for what CSS is concerned. Many specific features, such the layout setting, were not easy to understand just reading a text.

Audite el curso y lo comparó con un nivel de master ya que la información que contiene te proporciona muchísimos recursos, es genial, muy facil y sencillo de entender, es lo mejor en cursos que he tomado, definitivamente tomare los demás cursos que están sugeridos, ya que creo que aqui puedes aprender todo sobre el tema ya que si ese es el nivel de los fundamentos no tengo duda de la profesionalización al tomar los más avanzados.

Great course. A bit heavy on the academic side but overall gave me a good basis and gave me the chance to practise. I was also able to apply things I learned in my work. It got a bit more difficult towards the end.

Good course with great videos and good examples! It's really documented and well explained for the beginners. Perfect to understand the context and to be able to know why you have to do things this way. I highly recommend taking this course if you would like to learn how to setup a web page from scratch. I am ready to follow the next one!

I loved taking this course. The activities were helpful in practicing the skills you are learning, they also motivated me to finish the course. The exams were not easy but they also weren't too hard, they force you to use critical thinking skills to find the answer. Before this course, I took the Javascript course and the CSS Basics course from the same series. I wish I would've taken this course first because there are so many things I learned in the other courses that didn't fully make sense until I took this course. I highly recommend taking this course if you would like to learn how to setup a web page from scratch and add design in a tasteful manor.

I have completed the course in 2 months and 1 week and it was difficult to combine with your other activities but the Quality of the Course helps you to continue with passion and effort. Congratulations for all the good materials and the structured way is shown!!

I've had some basic knowledge of HTML and CSS, so something I just refreshed, but also I've got new experience, too. Especially I liked a course project when step by step you can create a simple, but achieved high standards web page. Thank you very much for such a great course!

I enrolled as an auditor in order to prepare myself for a fully-immersive online learning experience. Though I didn't take on lots of the proposed activities I know have a good understanding of HTML and CSS basic features and functioning and I can code up simple web pages. Couldn't ask more from a free educational path. I had already bought a few online courses when I enrolled, otherwise I'd have upgraded to the verified track with no doubt. W3C surely knows its business, I'm very satisfied with what I've got!

it would be better if a basic JavaScript concept is provided, if JS concept are given then it will be best course, although this course is good enough for a no-experience as well as an informal exposure student like me. And the other hand the instructor are good enough, and the provider is also good enough.

I just ended my first course, I was a completely beginner and I totally felt in love with the subject. It is awesome to see how many progress we can do following these classes, it really helped to increase my confidence as well!! I will continue following the other courses of the Front-End Developer program. This courses was clear and very exhaustive, perfect for a beginner or somebody who needs to consolidate notions. I loved activities, live coding videos, best practice tips and the forum part was very helpful. Thank you EDX and W3Cx for this amazing opportunity, I strongly believe that free online classes are gonna change the world!

This course is worth falling in love with. From content to activities everything can be easily understood. If one is a rookie to HTML5 and CSS then this is the go-to course.It not only make one well aware of the subject matter but also helps to know about the best practices for developer's ease and for making contents accessible to everyone.

My love for coding took me to this course, with 0 knowledge, and I loved it. I learned a lot, and I feel confident not only to apply all the knowledge I got along the course, but to be able to investigate by myself and understand the content thanks to the content of this course. I totally recommend it!!

I improved my knowledge of HTML and CSS upon completion of the course. Before that, I did not know the difference between some tags and their applications. But now I know when to use them and how to manipulate them.

Completed the course and even though I've been learning for at least a year (self taught) I learned so much more. Excellent for starters and intermediate alike, particularly in the understanding of semantics and Web Accessibility, the latter being something that seems to be forgotten about.
