What is the difference between HTML and CSS?

While both coding languages are integral to front-end web design, HTML and CSS have very different functions. HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) allows coders to create the content of a page, including text and images. CSS (Cascade Styling Sheets) is used to design a website: layout, background color, and visual effects are all created using CSS.

What programming language should a beginner start with?

As a beginner, HTML and CSS are the programming languages to start out with. Considered the building blocks of the digital experience, learning HTML and CSS will help create the foundation of your coding knowledge. Other languages include Java and Python—our bootcamps provide coding tutorials for programmers at any experience level.

What languages will I learn in Eleven Fifty’s intro to coding class?

The beginner coding class will cover two programming languages used in web development: HTML and CSS. While the intro class won’t have time to dive into other languages including JavaScript, Python, PHP, and Ruby on Rails the full coding bootcamp will cover those in more detail. Along with learning popular coding languages, the bootcamp will dive into how websites are built using databases and Structured Query Language (SQL), the most common open-source database management system.

What does a beginner coding class entail?

Coding for beginners is a crash course to help you determine whether a coding bootcamp is right for you. In our free Intro to Coding course, you’ll learn an overview of HTML and CSS, allowing you to determine which programming language is most interesting to you. You’ll also learn about our part- and full-time coding bootcamp options, including details about tuition, scholarships, and financing opportunities. This intro will also explain how the Career Services team works with graduates to find work after becoming certified in computer science.
