A couple weeks ago I bought a course from Coursera.org called “Full Stack Web Development Specialization.” I’ve been working through it off and on after work. Today I finished the first week material, which was basic HTML and CSS. I’m talking like HTML 101 stuff. About 90% I already knew, but it was a nice refresher. A few of the latest HTML5 items that it went over were new to me. Such as, fieldset, legend, main, section, and some of the new input types. The final assignment was to build a form. The instructions provided an image and some vague directions. The form included many different input types- including a radio options, checkboxes, a file upload button, labels, and a submit button. The course also discussed GET and POST differences, so we were supposed to pick the right one for our assignment. The instructions also provided some styles that we were supposed to apply.
For the project that I just finished I used Visual Studio Code. I am going to download a few more of the top IDEs to try out as well.
