Designers who want to get better jobs and increase their salary
Nowadays companies are looking for more than just a graphic designer. They're looking for designers that can make their designs come to life on a webpage through HTML and CSS. Don't take our word for it? Listen to our students:
Around two months ago I graduated from the University of Applied Sciences in Rotterdam as a User Experience Designer. Pretty awesome but soon I discovered there was not a lot of work in this area of expertise. So to enhance my chances for a suitable job I decided to improve my front-end skills. Every company wants people with programming skills nowadays. Since I advertised that in my motivational letters and mentioning it in my CV I have multiple invitation from companies to get to know each other." -- Ruud Visser, Graduate from University of Applied Sciences in Rotterdam
Coders that want to learn HTML and CSS fast
Excellent course that exposed me step-by-step to the world of web design. I come from a computer programming background and never really had to build a site from scratch. This was a great tool in pushing me to be a more well-rounded tech person. - Khalid
Complete beginners
Absolutely awesome! I recommend this course to anyone who feels like learning to code is too hard to start off with, because it really isn't. I thought it was too hard, but Ryan makes it look really easy with his step for step increase in difficulty. I built my own website within a week after starting this course, and it looks really great. Keep it up, Ryan! -- Robert de Kok
Those that have tried to learn HTML and CSS before and stopped
This is the first time I was able to go from start to finish with making an entire site. I have done other training before but they don't ever seem to close it off at the end. This class went over everything needed to make a site. I would love to find other courses like this. I also did not feel dumb mid way through the course due to lack of explaining. Everything was well documented and covered. Very good job on this thanks. - Jay Mims

Thanks for this, I am at a loss for words; I hope this helped articulate how thankful I am. Thank you! -- Cortell Shaw

Don't buy. It is so old you can even follow along with the exercises.

Very easy to understand. And what's the most important: After each lesson, there files to download. It's really nice. Thank you. Only one request. Add to your videos a little bit MORE quality. At least make them please in 1080p. That would be so wonderful. Thank very much!

Although the course seems a little dated, my experience so far has been great, easy to follow along instructions, and easy to understand. Would be great if the course was updated.

First of all, the course is easy to follow, lessons are laid out in chronological order. The audio is clear and the text is readable. He has a good voice as well for this sort of thing.This course will take you from zero knowledge of HTML to being able to buiild beautiful websites.This course uses Bootsrap 3. It is a framework that lets you build websites a little faster. He shows you how it works and uses it a lot. He does show you how it works so when he shows you how to do things without bootstrap later on it makes sense.

Excellent course Ryan, thoroughly enjoyed it, the lectures contain enough information in order to understand. If you want to learn basic web development without the faff then take this course :)1. The course gets you started with the HTML framework Bootstrap which is crucial if you want to develop responsive websites.2. I am taking another course on Udemy at the minute and I prefer this tutor more (you will understand if I discuss his name).3. Overall would I recommend this course to a friend. Yes I would if the person wanted to create templates for the first time with HTML and CSS and Bootstrap.Good course.

Ryan provided a lot of great content however, i would advise if anyone is interested in pursuing this course to start with something else before tackling this one. The course was mostly Bootstrap, so the title was misleading, there were some bad practises used i.e. not commenting end of div tags.In addition there was inactivity from the instructor none of my questions were answered i had to research myself on google web developer forums and stack overflow, however doing this course will bring value.

I'am still begginer and this course is great for me, lots of information, Ryan Teacher is great :-) BobbCurrently 75% of course, yeah :-)

This is a great course to learn HTML5 and CSS3 with Bootstrap! However, the instructor needs to update the materials I think.

I previously knew HTML and CSS but now when i work with it i feel confident the languages no longer feel strange. Most of the course and explanations where easy to follow. Great learning on this course

I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to learn for the first time, regain skills, and to learn new techniques. I look forward to any other courses from this instructor.I am looking to get back into the tech field after taking off about 8 years to pursue a career in teaching math. I have been reading about HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, Javascript, PHP and node.js as well as taking on my own small projects to learn new technologies and to get my skillset stronger.The instructor was great. I like how he just dug into the code and showed where to find documentation and did great live coding. The web resources like font awesome, google fonts, flat ui color etc were great. I added all of them to my "web toolkit". The quizzes were pretty good too.The video quality was great overall. I think 2 or 3 of the videos were not in HD quality but still readable. The sound quality was also good in all of the videos. I like to listen to my udemy courses via headphones or earbuds anyway.

I have had some HTML5 courses when I was in school for computer programming and after taking your course I have definitely learned more than from my school, plus I feel more confident in being able to create my own website with all the lessons and tricks you have taught me! Thank you for this brilliant course and I hope you have plenty of other courses to teach that are for front-end programming!

The instructor keep going through the process of building a site many times which helped sink in all the information through repetition,Great course over all!
