Before coming to class, please download a text editor for editing your web pages. We recommend Visual Studio Code. Standard Notepad can be used but it’s better to get a text editor which uses different colours for different parts of the code – it makes things much easier.

Download Visual Studio Code

Also, we ask that you please download and install Google Chrome, as we’ll be using its Developer Tools in this course.

Download Google Chrome
