About this course

With HTML and CSS, you can build visually appealing static web pages. With a bit of JavaScript, you can add dynamic behavior to these static websites. jQuery is a JavaScript library that provides you with a lot of dynamic behavior “out-of-the-box”, allowing you to add some creative effects to otherwise dull layouts.

  • The course has been amazing and extremely interesting. The support has been great and the way the course is laid out and set up, it is good for anyone, including those whom have no computer experience. I am an example of this. Some parts have been difficult, understandable, but the help and support is there for you to overcome it.
