Build professional websites.

HTML & CSS are the the two essential languages for making a website...a website. Learning HTML & CSS will pay itself forward time and time again.

This course takes you on the next step of your journey towards code-driven freedom. Empower yourself as a modern-day professional using Hello HTML & CSS as your guide.

The basics...

What is HTML?

Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the markup language for documents designed to be displayed in a web browser.

TL;DR; HTML is the way stuff gets rendered into a web browser.

What is CSS?

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are a style sheet language used for the presentation layer of HTML.

TL;DR; CSS what makes HTML look HOT!

Why learn HTML & CSS?

Both HTML and CSS are the foundational languages of modern websites. Without them there would be no web pages to look at on that computer or phone of yours. HTML, CSS, and the internet help people become more informed. Having knowledge of each language will produce in-demand skills no matter what career path you chose or are already a part of.

    And so much more

Who is this course for?

This course is for you if you are looking to learn enough code to build professional websites.

Additionally, there are many platforms that enable you to leverage a β€œno-code” approach toward building your website. Unfortunately, many of these tools still come with the expectation that you have at least some experience with coding. Each no-code tool also has a learning curve.

πŸ‘‡ Below are only some of the perks of knowing HTML and CSS πŸ‘‡

Feel more confident making changes to:

  • WordPress websites
  • Wix websites
  • Squarespace websites
  • Weebly websites
  • Carrd websites
  • Mailchimp email templates
  • Mailerlite email templates
  • ConvertKit email templates
  • Shopify themes
  • There are seriously endless use cases...

These no-code tools become much easier to use and understand:

  • Webflow
  • Carrd
  • Bubble
  • Landing pages in Mailchimp
  • Draftium
  • Amazon Honeycode
  • Websites by Mailerlite
  • LeadPages
  • Adobe Dreamweaver
  • and a boat load more...

Simply put, having knowledge of HTML & CSS will allow you to do more on the internet.

You may even find that after this course you don't need no-code tools to do what you're truly after.πŸ”₯

Learn by doing

No single course, book, tutorial, or mentor can make you a skilled HTML & CSS expert in a short amount of time. (This course included).

Applying what you learn from this course beyond the scope of this course will be what makes you more proficient. It takes time, practice, and consistency.

This all sounds cool but how much is it?

I believe helping others become more empowered with the web is one thing I wouldn't want to restrict. There is a pay what you want option that gets you the whole course minus some bonus content and the private community. Additionally, there will be a premium tier which unlocks everything.

TL;DR; – Expect there to be two tiers.

Tier 1: Pay what you want

Get the full course minus all bonus content and access to the private Hello HTML + CSS community

Tier 2: Premium

Get the full course with unlimited access to future updates. Get all bonus content and an invite to the private Hello HTML + CSS community

When will the course launch?

I'm still working on figuring that part out. If you subscribe below I'll email you when it's ready. As a subscriber, there is a good chance you might hear about it before others πŸ˜‰.

I've never coded anything before. Should I take this course?

This course is designed with an absolute beginner in mind. We'll take an in-depth look at each language (HTML & CSS). After some basics, we will use them to build real-world professional projects. You won't be an expert at the end of the course but you should come away with more confidence to dig into your own projects and see success.

What if this course isn't what I had hoped?

If you got the course and paid something for it you will get a refund. I want you to feel like you got your worth so I completely get it if it's not for you. Maybe it's my style of teaching, my voice, shirt color, face, or browser choice that bugs you. It doesn't matter what it is you'll be refunded πŸ‘.

What comes with the course?

This course consists primarily of screencasts with instruction. I'll be building each project along with you and give you more information about why things work the way they do. Check out my YouTube Channel for examples of my style. Many courses will gloss over important details or even omit all mistakes. In my opinion, making mistakes is how you learn so I want to make sure those aren't left in the dust.

In terms of ordering, we'll take a look at foundational concepts in greater depth and then put those concepts to use by building out a collection of example projects. You'll get a good grasp of using both HTML & CSS in unison as well as learn some tips from me when it comes to building web pages more efficiently.
