Hey! Welcome to Populearn :) I'm Jeremy, and about seven years ago I was stuck in a job I hated. I didn't know anything about making websites - so I taught myself, and now I'm making 100% of my income from them.
I learned to code in my spare time, building simple websites and apps after work. I studied business, not computer science, and I am confident that if I can learn to program in my spare time so can you. My first website was an app to help people learn German, and if you'd like to learn more about my experience you can check out the about page here.
One of my friends recently told me they were about to spend $10,000 to take a "programming boot camp" that would teach them pretty much exactly what I learned on my own for free... so as a favour to them (and other people out there who want to try coding but don't want to pay an outrageous fee) I decided to make a free course using the exact process that worked for me.
Populearn starts with a brief introduction to HTML and CSS. We’ll jump right in and I’ll teach you the basic structure of HTML (HyperText Markup Language), and you’ll learn how to code a bare-bones website. A pure HTML website is really ugly, so we’ll quickly move on to CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) in chapters 2 and 3. Some people focus their entire career on using CSS to make beautiful website, so we’re not going to be able to cover everything... but I’ll teach you enough to make your website not-ugly :)
Are you seriously still reading this? Ha ha, I’m impressed and I think you’re going to learn a lot :) But it’s probably time for you to start coding, so:
