Week 1 Summary

A short summary of the week's learnings.

Congratulations! You’ve completed Week 1: Developing your application further.

This week you’ve focused on the common web accessibility guidelines, and have explored how HTML can be used to meet them. We’ve also covered CSS and its purpose and application.

You learnt about:

  • the importance of checking your HTML, semantic tags, and alt text
  • the result of two rules that apply to the same element
  • the different things CSS can do.

Next week you will learn about various styling components used in CSS text and layouts, including forms, links, and backgrounds.
