Hi everyone, my name is Christina Truong and welcome to my course Building Stronger Front-end Practices I've been a front-end developer for about 10 years now and have seen a lot change during that time. In this course, we are going to take it back to the basics but also dive in a little deeper to gain a better understanding of front end languages, specifically HTML and CSS.Some of the major topics that we will cover include: 1. HTML5 semantics 2. Best practices and optimization techniques 3. Writing modular and efficient CSS 4. Establishing a style guide for your projects and codebase By the end of this course, you'll gain a more thoughtful approach to writing your code, planning and setting up your projects and evaluating which tools, if any, need to be incorporated into your front-end architecture.Before beginning the course you should be familiar with HTML and CSS. A bit of JavaScript might be useful but is not necessary. I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn more thoughtful approaches to writing front-end code with the Building Stronger Front-end Practices course, at Pluralsight.
