How to Learn HTML & Why We Teach It

HTML is one of the foundational coding languages we teach in our coding bootcamps. It’s a highly sought-after skill, easy to learn, a great way to boost earning potential, and works well with the other programming languages we include in our curriculum. By learning HTML, our graduates are able to enter the job search as well-rounded applicants for software engineering jobs.

The Benefits of Learning HTML

HTML is the primary programming language used to encode web pages. It works in close conjunction with CSS.

How You Learn HTML at App Academy

Rather than using more theoretical instruction to teach coding languages at App Academy, we take a more practical approach.

Inverted Classroom Approach

During a typical week, students are assigned homework in advance of their lectures and lessons. These homework assignments prepare them for the upcoming lesson and help lay the foundation for the collaborative activities they’ll participate in during class. Instructors then give a lecture each morning and provide theoretical and practical use cases to reinforce the information that was just learned.

Portfolio Projects

In the afternoon, students will work with their peers on additional practice assignments or on their portfolio projects. In each of our immersive programs, we ask students to create a full-stack project to put their skills to the test and start building their portfolio. Some of these projects have included:

    • Clones of popular sites like Spotify and Instagram
    • Career networking sites
    • Investing sites

Learning HTML in Conjunction With CSS

HTML and other coding languages taught at App Academy impact different facets of a website or application. CSS interacts the most closely with HTML. While HTML defines essential web page attributes like headers and paragraph locations, CSS augments this with design elements like fonts, colors, and other appearance aspects. App Academy teaches HTML and CSS in close proximity, although the exact scheduling of the curriculum depends on the program a student is enrolled in.
