    About this Course

    HTML5 and CSS3 are the foundation of any web project. This course will introduce students to the techniques used in the development of any web site. Over the two-day class students will learn how web applications work, and how to produce the HTML, CSS and Javascript code that work behind the scenes to create a full web experience. Through the use of instructor-led, hands-on exercises and real-world examples students will learn the latest techniques and standard practices used in web design and production. The samples and exercises begin with a basic HTML page structure then build into more complex page designs with interactive interfaces, slideshows, video and forms.
