This course is 100% project driven and teaches you how to build a professional website WHILE teaching the core HTML and CSS concepts along the way.
Hi and welcome to the HTML5 & CSS Professional Development course, where we'll walk through the same course I teach code bootcamp students around the world. My name is Jordan Hudgens, and I'll be your instructor for the course. In addition to being the lead instructor for devCamp I've also been building web applications for over a decade for organizations such as Eventbrite and Quip.
In this course, you're going to learn all of the key skills that you're going to need in order to start building out professional websites. Before building this new course out, I interviewed hiring managers at companies around the world and asked them what HTML/CSS skills they expected developers to know and that's how I came up with the list of concepts that you're going to learn.
Some of the skills that you're going to learn are going to be:
As we go through the course material, you'll notice that I'm going to teach you my own process that I use whenever I'm building out a website.
My goal for this entire course isn't just to teach you how to build a single website, but instead my goal is to be able to leverage this project build that we're going to put together, teach you the fundamentals as we implement every single feature, and then by the end of it, you're not just going to be able to build the single website and follow along with what I do, but you'll be able to build any type of website.
There are no technical prerequisites for going through this course. This is the perfect course to go through if you want to learn how to build websites completely from scratch.
The ideal student is someone who is dedicated, wants to learn, and also wants to learn how to build websites using the most modern and up to date technologies. So, thank you for spending the time and going through this material, and good luck with the coding.

I didn't have much of a background in coding before taking this course. Due to a recent career change, some basic knowledge of HTML and web building was required. This was a great introduction for me and I feel I know much more than required. It is a wonderful course for any one new to the subject, or looking to expand your existing skills.
Good content. Look forward to more form this instructor.
Thank you for your great course. Also this team provides excellent support. I have taken three courses here and each time I am impressed.
Excellent program. Very comprehensive. I am enjoying it very mush and learning a lot.
Very clear. Explains every move. Easy to follow.
As always, the content and presentation from this instructor is top notch! I would definitely recommend to others interested in learning this subject matter.
Very well organized and presented course that took me from beginner, to some of the tricky stuff in building a website. I've been coding as a hobby for some time now, but this course made me believe that I can actually do it. The tutor explains very simple flex box and grid and I actually fell in love with CSS, as I was a bit lost before. Thank you so much!!!
I'm a visual learner so this course fulfills my learning style by working on a real project and explaining the process of how to structure the layout of the website.
Very nice and calm, step-by-step
So far so good. The content seems to be complimenting my previous knowledge by providing useful tips on how to use the text editors and developer tools while also explaining many of the 'why?' of the methodology. It also clearly demonstrates the direction of the course so the student doesn't get too distracted wondering when the juicy stuff will come.
My second course with Jordan. He increments things at a perfect pace and explains everything thoroughly. I am excited to start the next two courses I have from him as well.
This is a great course. I love how Jordan explains everything clearly.
Jordan explains things very thoroughly. He tells you not only how to do things, but why you use certain tools. This is very important in any field of development. Excellent course
