With an idea, persistence, and some creativity, getting started in web development is quite easy.

This course will focus on what is generally referred to as front-end web development. This means you’ll be writing HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to create the web pages users will see and interact with on a web site. You’ll design how the content is organized on a page and how the pages interact with each other. Back-end web development tends to focus on programming how a web site interacts with a database to insert content or allow user logins and other user customizations.

The basics of front-end web development involve typing up web page code (markup and styles) using a text editor or code editor. Then, reviewing that page with a web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.). You need a bit of software, but the software (browsers, code editor, and FTP application) are all free.
