Course Description

HTML and CSS are markup languages and the building blocks that make up the web. This course 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 are 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...

As someone who took this course after Programming Foundations with Python, I was disappointed in how scattered this course seemed in comparison. They do state in advance that this course will teach you HTML & CSS differently, but unless your coming through with a decent amount of knowledge beforehand, they breeze through a lot of basic syntax and then jump right into more in-depth topics such as CSS Frameworks, Bootstrap, and using Developer tools. All of the concepts are great, but it's not really an 'Intro to HTML & CSS' course. For those interested in learning the basics, I'd recommend John Duckett's HTML & CSS book, or Codeacdemy's class. Those will give you a far more in-depth look into the basics.

Intro to HTML and CSS is a 3-lesson primer on front-end web development and design. Although the name of the course suggests you'll learn HTML and CSS basics, the content is actually focused on higher level web development and design concepts like web page and project structure, responsive design and web frameworks. The course spends very little time talking about nuts and bolts like different HTML tags and CSS properties. The content itself is well done, it just strays a bit from what you'd expect given the title of the course. It should be entitled "Fundamentals of front-end web development/design" or something similar. This course is hard to rate given that the content is good, but it doesn't quite fulfill the expectations set by the title. As such, I'm subtracting 1 star from what is otherwise a nice, short intro to front end web development. If you want to learn HTML nuts and bolts, the first week of Udacity's "web develo...

If you want to learn HTML nuts and bolts, the first week of Udacity's "web development" spends a lot more time going over HTML tags. The HTML and CSS courses on Code Academy and Code School are also good options.
