Intro to HTML & CSS for Newbies by Nina Cross

Intro to HTML & CSS for Newbies

Learn how to code in an easy, fun, and supportive environment!

So, you've been curious about learning HTML & CSS...

Maybe, you tried to teach yourself how to code but gave up a few days in.

Or perhaps you became so overwhelmed by the gazillion online tutorials on the interwebz, that you didn’t know where to begin so you never even started in the first place.

As a professional web developer, I hear these stories all. of. the. time.

A few years back, I found myself thinking...

"I wish I could show people how easy and fun it is to learn HTML + CSS so that they can add this sought-after skill to their resume or even start their own thriving business."

And boom (goes the dynamite).... the idea came to me to create the perfect course to do just that.

In Intro to HTML & CSS for Newbies, you will gain the skills, practice, and personalized support you need to understand HTML + CSS with ease.
"If you've been curious about learning HTML + CSS, you should take this course. I learned more from Nina in a couple hours than I did in years of my own research and experimentation. No need to be intimidated, either - the course is really fun and you'll be so proud of all your new skills!"
