Introduction to Web Development

Every day we use the internet to socialise, shop, work and learn. But what are we actually looking at? How is it made? This course will show you what websites look like “behind the scenes” and how to build them yourself from scratch. You will learn all the basics of web development by creating your own personal blog website. The course starts with HTML5, showing you how to structure websites and concludes with CSS3, where you will style and design your website. These two languages, HTML5 and CSS3, underlie every website in existence which means once learnt you’ll be capable of creating any kind of website without being limited to premade templates, such as in WordPress. This course is designed for all ages and requires only Google Chrome and WordPad (or any other text editor).
