Easy to Learn: Out of all of the programming languages, HTML and CSS are the easiest to learn and implement. There is no math or conditional logic used to write these languages as there is in Python, Java, and many others. Instead, HTML and CSS are intuitive coding languages that are rooted in the English language. Despite their rudimentary basis, command of these languages is a non-negotiable for anyone involved in digital communications, especially since they provide the basis for understanding a wide range of advanced languages and applications.

The first part of this course covers HTML syntax such as headers, paragraph, body, title, and meta tags. Students will then learn how to accurately input images, followed by an organic transition into styling pages using CSS. Students will learn how to use the class system in CSS as well as CSS tags such as div, background-color, borders, and more. The first part of the course will finish with students using developer tools to understand how advanced layouts are created, followed by building a fluid layout of their own for their personal website project.
The second part of the course focuses on design. Students use advanced CSS topics and Sketch to learn how to create new files, insert photos, insert vector graphics, as well as create symbols and edit text styles.
