Context

Have you ever wanted to learn frontend coding from scratch? Wondered how the content of a website automatically adapts to the screen of a mobile? How long it really takes to create a “check-out” button? How to integrate external services for newsletters, payments and much more?

Web developers do not constantly code the same components or layouts. Instead, they build and improve their libraries using the latest design techniques and re-use these libraries for any new website.

Learning Objective: code your first website

This module will teach students how to code simple, beautiful and responsive websites using HTML5 and CSS3 (front-end languages for coding websites). It will also show them how to launch their website online, configure the domain name, integrate 3rd party services through APIs that can manage payment, newsletters, geolocation, surveys, and much more. Finally, students will learn how to implement Google Analytics to monitor their website’s traffic and its users’ behaviour.

Targeted Skills

- Mark-up your content with HTML.

- Design a website with CSS.

- Build a UI library of components with CSS

- Host your website online and integrate 3rd party services
