Learn to Code with The HTML Show

Launch Academy

February 1, 2022

There's a special moment that happens a few times every year. A student at Launch Academy will stand up and shout, it works! Oh my God, it works! It's like witnessing the making of a mad scientist. It's special. That feeling is what we strive for, and what we want to bring to everyone. In many ways, it's why Launch Academy exists.

You can have a moment like that, too—at home, for free! Check out The HTML Show, hosted by Launch Academy Co-Founder Dan Pickett. Pickett will walk you through the foundations of HTML and CSS, a small portion of the Launch Academy curriculum that focuses on front end development. 

This course is recommended for anyone who wants to see if coding is something they could fall in love with—and the capstone project is coding a full web page. (You can do it!)

What You’ll Learn from The HTML Show

Through both our step-by-step process and our “learn by doing” approach, you’ll gain an understanding of how to build and deploy attractive web pages.

Every web page you interact with is made with HTML and CSS. While other languages like JavaScript, Ruby, and C# may be involved, the fundamentals of every web application boils down to HTML and CSS at its core.

Do I Need to Buy Any Software?

Nope. Thanks to the wonderful world of open source software, every application we use is freely downloadable and available via the web.
