Websites are not a fad. They are here to stay and businesses, bloggers and education utilize them to connect. There are many different modes of websites. From purposes of connecting people to sharing ideas, websites share one commonality: HTML. While you can create a website without any knowledge of HTML, CSS and PhP, you can’t truly customize it. It is kind of like driving a car without being able to shift gears on your own. This course explores two principles including design practices and coding. This class is project based.
