Seems like this course includes both basic and advanced level HTML/CSS. Is that correct?

Are there any short assignments I can finish to practice my skills alongside? Besides the ones that are already included.

Hi there! I'm not sure about "advanced" HTML being used here, but I can tell you that the best assignments are the ones you give yourself. The absolute best way to learn to code is to break it and then fix it. It just is.

That being said, Treehouse is an exceptional place to get you started with a good foundation. But if you're looking for practice sort of on-the-go, might I suggest codepen or jsfiddle. These both support HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Both are free and run in your web browser. There's no need to set up an environment locally. I've even been known to use one or both from my iPad when out and about (and bored).

But you can always practice on your own local environment with a text editor (even notepad). Some top suggestions for text editors tend to be:

And given that you're looking to be a web developer, you're eventually going to need a portfolio. So why not start working on one now? Play with color schemes and stylings. Find what looks good to you. Make different styles and compare them and narrow down what you want on your site and how it's presented.

Good luck to you! :sparkles:
