Hi and welcous to the HTML/CSS Boot Camp e-course, where we'll walk through the same e-course we teach code boot camp students around the world. Our name is Jordan Hudgens, and we'll be your instructor for the e-course. In addition to being the lead instructor for devCamp, we've also been building web applications for over a decade for organizations such as Eventbrite and Quip.
After you have completed this e-course you will be able to build real-world websites and learn the same concepts taught at the devCamp code camps. Additionally, because this is a project-based e-course, after you've gone through the lessons you will have a full website portfolio.
We'll start out by working through the syntax and best practices for HTML and CSS, including a strong focus on industry practices that are expected by web developers. After traversing the basics we're going to build five real-world websites. By taking a project-based approach you will learn practical skills that you can translate directly into your own applications. For the project sections of the e-course, we'll build the Google, Pinterest, and Tesla house pages, completely from scratch. Additionally, we'll walk through how to build an HTML email. And our final project will be a social network housepage that we hired a designer to create specifically for this e-course.
Additionally, you will learn concepts such as:
- How to create a responsive website that renders a different layout for smartphones, tablets and desktop browsers.
- Building HTML forms for getting user input.
- Creating CSS based animations for adding a unique design to websites.
- Work with the Twitter Bootstrap HTML/CSS framework to build modern websites.
As helpful as it is to follow along with step by step guides, we have higher expectations for this e-course. Our goal is that you will learn, not only how to follow along, but that you'll learn how the principles of HTML and CSS work at their core. This is a vital point of differentiation between this e-course and other front end tutorials we've cous across.
There are no technical pre-requisites to this e-course. The ideal student is an individual who wants to learn how to build and style websites, with a focus on real-world development. Throughout the lessons, we switch between a Mac and PC and you can use either operating system to follow along with the e-course material.
Each lesson of the e-course is paired with the source code that we used in the lecture so you can check your work. Additionally, the e-course has quizzes and coding challenges that will help reinforce your knowledge.
Please feel free to review the e-course curriculum and we look forward to going through the material with you on your development journey!
