“Every programmer needs to know the basics of HTML, and we design courses like these on our platform to inspire teachers and parents to encourage kids to learn this increasingly important language. In a world driven by technology, knowing how to code is as fundamental of a skill today as math, reading and science. Our free courses are designed to help kids develop a passion and understanding of programming through fun and interactive learning,” says Chad Utley, vice president of content, Pluralsight.
This new Pluralsight course explores the basics of HTML, the fundamental publishing language of the Web. Led by Pluralsight author Jill Gundersen, the course teaches kids how to utilize the most used tags in HTML5 to create a website that can be displayed in any browser.
“Computers and mobile devices have become critical to almost every business and job function in the world and it is important that my kids have an understanding of how to program. Thanks to Pluralsight they can get started with free and fun kids’ courses. As they learn to program they will understand that there are always multiple ways to complete a task, and won't be bound to the idea that things need to be completed in any one pecific way,” says Jim Myrah, developer and user of Pluralsight.
