Codecadamy HTML/CSS (Part Two)

blog post4

I managed to complete the HTML/CSS course on Codecadamy today. Whilst I knew most of the basics that it covered, there were a few things that I picked up along the way that were new to me. The last task on the course was to create a page following loose instructions.

Mine ended up looking like this. It’s very basic, though the idea was to show everything that the course had taught you to prove that you understood. I am now going to go use ‘Brackets’ to play around with my own coding and try to create something a bit more adventurous.

Codecadamy HTML/CSS

After I had finished my workshop today, I started the Codecademy course on HTML/CSS. Needless to say, I haven’t finished the course completely yet, though I have made it over 3/4 of the way. Most of the content is stuff that I am already familiar with, though there have been a few parts that have been completely new to me and were fun to figure out.

To be brief, the few specific things that I didn’t understand before (but now do) are:

  • How to make tables properly (I was bad at this before)
  • How to use a border radius to curve edges
  • The actual different between class/ID
  • What pseudo class actually means

I will hopefully finish the course 100% tomorrow, as I want to move on to some more complicated wed design and possible start designing things for practice.
