HTML-CSS and Command Line
In this module you will learn HTML and CSS. HTML is the language in which you define the structure of the content of your pages (e.g. headings, paragraphs, links and images). CSS is used to write down how everything should look (e.g. font sizes, colors and positions). While learning the basics of these two languages, you will also get familiar with text editors and the developer tools of your browser.
The command line (cli, shell) is the interface between you (the user) and the operating system which interprets your commands and allows the computer to respond to your command. In this module you will be introduced to the command line which you will mainly use it to navigate to your file system and for creating files. Throughout the entire program you will have to use these skills and build on top of it.
So since this is your first module, what can you expect the next three weeks?
