Before attending the course, I had a vague and patchy knowledge of HTML, but now I feel that I have a really good understanding of the basics and all the gaps have been filled. I would recommend this course to anyone who has to deal with HTML on a daily basis.

The HTML course for beginners was everything and more of what I hoped for. It's more than a beginner class. It's the start of learning something new in HTML and coding in general. I couldn't have been happier. Thank you.
