About This Workshop

Explore the programming languages that power the web and write your first line of code.

During our online introductory workshop, explore the building blocks of the web — HTML and CSS — and learn how you can apply these programming languages to develop your own simple sites.

  • Ask questions and interact with peers and expert instructors — all in real time. Collaborate via live chat and Q&A.
  • Complete hands-on coursework in an online classroom designed to keep you engaged and focused.
  • Gain accountability and guidance from your instructor and fellow classmates to help you turn skills into career success.

  • Learn how HTML and CSS function together to form the backbone of the web.

  • Cover key coding terms and principles.

  • Develop a custom, working web page from scratch.

    Chart your own career path.
