Knowing how to swing a baseball bat can help you survive the zombie apocalypse even if you aren't a professional player. In the same way, knowing how to swing a little HTML and CSS can help you survive that latest blog post or web article even if you'd consider yourself “technically challenged.” And maybe you already know this. You see the zombie horde on the horizon and know you'll need to understand some code, but every book you try is boring, frustrating, or downright scary.

Fear not. This course will give you an introduction to HTML and CSS so you can understand what they do, how they work and recognize some basic code you'd see any day of the week. Then we'll pull out the baseball bats and start smacking down some zombie problems you've struggled with before like the gobbledygook Microsoft Word pukes onto your page, how to align photos independently and more.

By the end of this session, you'll have knocked the snot out of your coding fears and be armed with practical skills you can take to the bank (or wherever you store your money after the apocalypse).

Requirements

Prerequisites: A willingness to learn; a desire to take down the apocalyptic horde

Required software: A plain text editor and a browser (I’ll go over these and also point you to a few free tools that can make your life easier.)
