Description: This hands on course provides a thorough introduction into the creation of a Website using HTML, CSS and Bootstrap v3.3.7. The course starts with thorough coverage of HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and progresses to using the Bootstrap framework to create mobile-friendly websites.

Students will learn to attach CSS to a page using several different techniques, CSS selectors and pseudo-classes, CSS box model, and a variety of CSS properties.

Students will learn how to create a Bootstrap page utilizing the grid system, implement commonly used components (such as dropdowns and navigation bars), use Bootstraps CSS classes to format page elements and use Bootstrap's plugins to add tabs, modals and accordions to a page.
