A set of tutorials we used for the complete beginners guide to HTML and CSS. Assumes no prior knowledge.


HTML & CSS for Complete Beginners

Here are the zip files we downloaded during the first 5 days in Dublin 15 ITB. It assumes no prior knowledge of HTML or CSS, hence the gentle language used particularly in the first two tutorials.

Feel free to use or alter these in any other CojoDojos as you wish.

For all editing of HTML, we used Notepad++ on Windows and TextWrangler for the Mac.

Day 1.zipZip containing short pdf on what is HTML, CSS and a few made up definitions of the words that we repeated during the day. Contains 3 sample HTML files with CSS at the top.
Day 2.zipPutting your styles into a separate file instead of in your HTML; Lists; Embed a video from YouTube
Day 3.zipA horizontal list example if you want to put a menu across the top of your page; introduction to CSS classes
Day 4.zipCSS Gradients, and an introduction to how divs work and why you need to know what they are
Day 5.zipThis is just a follow on to explain the concept of divs and ids again. You should probably look at the Day 4 content first before looking at this.
