Introduce yourself

What is the internet and how does it work??

In this activity, you’ll get a high-level overview of the internet itself. You’ll also explore how data travels around the world every time you click a link and where the code that you’ll be writing later in the course sits.

Do you speak code??

Now it’s time to start looking at the types of code used on the web. You’ll explore what different coding languages are used for and why they’re so important – not just to web developers, but to anybody working with the web.

Investigating source code?

In this activity, you’ll look at HTML in action. You’ll explore more about how HTML works and use the functionality built into your web browser to explore the code of real websites.

Styling web pages?

It’s now time to look at CSS in action. In this activity, you’ll look at the CSS language in more detail, before going on to explore the CSS of actual web pages using the development tools you met in the previous activity.
