Throughout this course, you'll learn about the underlying structure of the web - HTML. You'll learn how to use this tree-like structure to create websites. You'll also learn how to apply styling to a website through CSS. You'll learn about CSS syntax, selectors, and units. Along the way, you'll also learn about code editors and a browser's Developer Tools.
Why Take This Course? Are you interested in learning about how a website is built? Have you heard of HTML but aren't sure what it is? Have you always wished you knew how to change the look and style of a website? If you answered "Yes!" to any of these questions, then this course is for you!
You'll learn the fundamental building block of every website - HTML. You'll learn about HTML tags, attributes, nesting, and so much more! You'll also learn how to style websites using CSS. CSS is how styling is done for all websites, so you'll be learning it alongside HTML to be able to create styled, well-structured websites.

I enjoyed this course and learned a lot. I started it after completing the five-hour HTML and CSS module on Free Code Camp (FCC). Taking the Udacity syntax course after built on and explained certain concepts I didn't quite get with the FCC module. I also like that I learned some of the "whys" (Udacity) of HTML and CSS after the "hows" (FCC). That learning format goes against the grain for me, but it made retention much more effective. One of my favorite activities from the course was using DevTools to modify existing websites. I would recommend this course for beginners, especially those with non-tech backgrounds.

Nice refresher but still helpful for anyone brand new to HTML/CSS. Also the course overestimate's its length, you can be finished in just a few hours and you'll have still been able to obtain useful knowledge.
