Welcome to the beginner’s guide to coding!
In this course, we’re going to explore a lot together. There are three modules (3 mini courses) included in the beginners guide to coding:
Web Development Fundamentals: A beginners guide to coding
Understanding how websites work, a glimpse into the request/response lifecycle
HTML 101: An introduction to web development for complete beginners
First, we’ll look at web development fundamentals including common myths about getting into web development, the tools of the trade, getting a coding program installed, and much more.
Then we’ll dive into understanding websites and take a look at how websites actually work, what your browser does, and how it all comes together on your computer. We’ll look into web requests and server responses as the way computers “talk” to each other.
Lastly, we’ll jump into HTML 101 where we’ll learn about what HTML is, how it’s useful, why we should learn it, and then we’ll be writing quite a bit of code.
There are 3 projects — one at the end of each module. This will give you hands-on experience every step of the way.
What separates this course from other courses is this is 100% beginner-friendly, there are no assumptions made about your skill level, and I’ve designed the curriculum to help you learn properly meaning you won’t need to take another HTML course if you don’t want to — you’ll be completely set up for success as a beginner web developer.
