About Web Design Foundations
Web Design Foundations is a four part modular course aimed at anyone who wants to learn about how the Web works from the very basic beginnings and be taken step by step, in a friendly informal style, up to the point where they know how to build a basic modern best practices web site and put it online. This includes a bit of theory, but it largely focuses on getting your hands dirty with code (such as HTML and CSS), and learning how it REALLY works.
