First, you'll learn how to code in HTML, which is awesomely geeky. Then you'll move on to code-editing features and learn how to style your pages using CSS. Finally, you'll learn some more advanced concepts of web-page design, including cascading style sheets, Java script, CSS3, jQuery and layout design for the web.
