Week 2
We educate you on structuring HTML code , including media elements , referencing external resources and teach you how to separate CSS styles from HTML code , continue styling your code and learn more about the box model , since your code has become more mature.

Week 3
We deepen your understanding of HTML and CSS by applying advanced properties, like flexbox and pseudo elements.

Week 4
We will teach you how to make web apps interactive and lay the foundation for the following sections by introducing JavaScript.

Week 5
We will dive deeper into JavaScript and its mechanisms and get to understand and apply basic programming concepts like loops and conditions.

Week 6
We will improve the apps performance by applying advanced JavaScript concepts and give you an idea aboutwhich technologies would be a good complement to those learned in this course.

Exercises
Each week includes several problems that you should solve, including quizzes as well as a peer review challenge you should solve and will then grade four of your fellow learners.
Additionally, you will have to write source code in the three languages covered in an interactive code editor that provides you with instant feedback and enables you to earn several badges and achievements.
