From the beginning of 2018 the Code Club I run has been going through the Web-Dev projects of Code Club projects with the attendees learning about HTML and CSS. Today they completed Module 1 and I’m proud of them.
When I first did any web development it was at GCSE level (IT) and the teacher taught how to use Microsoft Word ’97 and save the document (.doc) file as a web page (.html) file. Yeah, it contained text and hyperlinks but it was a bad way to learn web development.
The attendees learned about the layout of HTML, how CSS works, linking to CSS files (both their own and those belonging to other sites), HTML and CSS tags, altering fonts, inserting pictures, creating lists, borders and (my son’s favourite) the dif tag!
I wish web development had been this fun back when I was doing it at GCSE.
