    Great for beginners who don't know anything about coding. Apart from the theoretical learning, we got some practice with coding in two languages.

    This is really good for people without background on HTML and CSS. I've been studying this along with Code Academy's Code Functions Path. The two helped me really understand and apply my learning regarding HTML and CSS.
