Welcome to HTML and CSS4:28 with Treasure Porth
In this lesson you'll learn about the role of HTML and CSS, where and how these are used to structure and style many of the websites you visit everyday, and you'll take a look at the example project you will be working on throughout the course.
Starting your journey in web development can often feel like you're learning a new language. There are a whole range of new ideas and concepts you'll encounter, but you don't always need to memorize or remember what these terms mean straight away! In the Teacher's Notes for each lesson in this course, you'll find some helpful additional comments and resources to help you develop and deepen your understanding over time.
Saving your changes in Workspaces
Remember, to view the changes you've made to the project files in your Workspace, you'll first need to save each file you've edited before refreshing the browser. When Treasure asks you to change the color to blue and refresh, make sure you've saved the file first! This is quick and easy if you use one of these shortcuts:
Saving your file
|Operating System||Keyboard Shortcut|
|Mac OSX||Command ⌘ + S|
|Windows||Ctrl + S|
HTML - HyperText Markup Language, a set of tags we use to describe the structure of web pages.
CSS - Cascading Style Sheets, a language used to describe how an HTML element should look when displayed in a browser.
These resources are optional, but are great assets for learning more about the field of web development!
