Coding Challenge Overview & Introduction to HTML

The first day of our free coding course covers the foundations of HTML. You’ll learn how to create, organise and structure web page content using this programming language by experimenting with your own webpage.

Add Style With CSS

Day 2 is when you will learn about CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). CSS defines your webpage’s style, design and layout. This will be a little more challenging than the HTML content, but once you are through it you are sorted for the rest of the week.

The third day of the coding challenge focuses on HTML 5 and the Semantic Web. HTML5 is a markup language used for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. The Semantic web is a development of the World Wide Web in which web pages are structured and tagged so that it can be read directly by computers.
