My first impression of the lesson Web Design Fundamentals by James Williamson on Lynda.com was almost a sense of relief. We use websites everyday and I am intrigued to learn more. When watching the instructor write the code, it brought me back to the “MySpace” days, where I would edit the code to edit the page. It’s hard to believe that was 10 years ago, but it was interesting to learn more about the HTML markups that I played around with back then.
If I learned more about creating webpages, I could see myself creating a webpage for each of my entrepreneurial ideas, rather than have someone else do it for me.
It was interesting to learn about the different tags. This is one aspect of HTML I would like to learn more about. Opening tags, closing, head and body were a few I remember from the lesson. It was interesting to see the default settings in Chrome applied to the html code. Now that I am aware of these default settings, I can say I recognize then in most web articles.
Second, I would like to learn more about CSS <style>, or Cascading Style sheets, which controls the style of the text.
