What is this?

HTML and CSS are the building blocks of every website. HTML is to create the content of a site. For example, this very paragraph is written in HTML. CSS is used to style websites. All colors and fonts, like this on websites are written in CSS. Together, they can be used to build functional and beautiful websites.

The Rails Girls KL tutorial also uses HTML and CSS. If you want to learn how to style your web application differently and make it prettier, this is the class for you!
