If you are interested in web design you need to know HTML and CSS. And if you’re new to web design, the two are excellent places to start. Below is a very simple introduction to what the two are, what they each do and, consequently, the differences between them.
The first web page I ever created had a grey background, not because that was "in" but rather because it was the only option available. All the links were blue, again because there was no way to change the colour. And the text was Times New Roman (why, oh why did anyone ever think that was a good idea? Still, anything’s better than Comic Sans).
It was 1996 and I was a college student in Los Angeles. I signed up to take a new course called Web Design without even really understanding what it meant.
All I knew was that I could somehow learn to create designs that would then be visible to anyone with an internet connection and a computer, no matter where they called home or what language they spoke. I didn't have to fax them the pages, or have them printed and shipped. They just appeared... magically... with the click of a button.
To anyone born since then, this isn't a revelation. But to me, particularly as a graphic designer, this was mind-blowing.
As part of my role at Excel with Business, I regularly create emails for our marketing campaigns. To do this I use a web design programme called Adobe Dreamweaver. It is a programme that, on the outset, looks extremely daunting – especially if you have never written in code before. As Dreamweaver features in our Web Design course I thought it would be helpful to share a few features of the programme that I find really handy and allow me, a veritable coding novice, to produce some pretty powerful email campaigns.
A "Hello, world!" program is a computer program that outputs "Hello, World!" on a display device. It is typically one of the simplest programs possible in almost all computer languages. As such it can be used to quickly compare syntax differences between various programming languages. It is also used to verify that a language or system is operating correctly. The following is a list of "Hello, world" programs in 28 of the most commonly used programming languages.
