    Although I've done a small amount of work with developers, this course challenged me in what I thought HTML and CSS was, and how it's used, to challenge me to write my own code and see it in action, so I loved the interactive element of learning. Only a small point, but learning to code for web does not include Javascript, but there are lots of resources provided for extra learning along the way so I'll be looking into those :)

    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.

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