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 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.
