Welcome!

In this course, you are an independent contractor who develops custom websites for small organizations. The Northside Youth Soccer League (NYSL) has hired you to develop a website for their soccer teams. You will work on this website on your own and will learn to use modern HTML and CSS to produce an attractive, informative multi-page website based on the client's requirements.

To do this, you'll work through a series of tasks designed by experts in programming and web development to help you create a robust and useful website, and to reflect real challenges that arise during the website development process.

What is Website Development?

Website Development is the process of creating a website. The web development process includes:

  • Gathering the information to display on the website.
  • Deciding on a look and feel for the website.
  • Coding the web pages using HTML and CSS.
  • Validating that the HTML and CSS coding is correct and follows industry standards. 
  • Testing that the web pages work as specified, on multiple browsers.
