CSS Foundations

In front-end web development, there are three key technologies that drive web pages. These are HTML, JavaScript and CSS. HTML controls the heart of the information to be expressed. CSS frames how that HTML is rendered on the page and JavaScript controls the logic of the page. In this course you will learn how to work with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). You’ll learn how to control the layout and style of a web page with CSS.

Taught by front-end web developer and instructor Kevia Cloud, you’ll quickly be ready to get your hands dirty with this essential aspect of web development.
