About the Technology

What makes a website pop, stand out, and feel great to browse? The answer is HTML, CSS, and a little bit of an artistic eye! Without HTML and CSS, every website would just be a few lines of text on a single white page. Even a little understanding of HTML and CSS can help you create web pages that look great and stand out from the crowd, so why wait? Pick up the skills you need to make something awesome today!

About the book

Contrary to what you may have heard, learning web design doesn’t need to be boring! What you need is something that goes beyond a boring reference book. Web Design Playground takes you step-by-step from writing your first line of HTML to creating interesting, attractive web pages. In this project-based book, you’ll use a custom online workspace, the book’s companion Playground, to design websites, product pages, photo galleries, and more. Don’t worry about setting up your own servers and domain names—the Playground takes care of that for you! You can concentrate on core skills like adding images and video and laying out the page, plus learning typography, responsive design, and the other tools of the web trade.
