Learn Coding

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Coding/HTML/CSS

In this blog I will be writing about how Coding has impacted businesses and how coding will benefit individuals.  I will also mention what HTML and CSS are and how they have a positive impact on business organisations.

Benefits of Coding

There are many different benefits if you learn coding the main ones are, when you have learnt coding you will be able to create your own website, not only will you be able to create it you will be able to maintain the website. This will save you tons of money instead of paying a technician to maintain the website you will be able to use your own knowledge and maintain the website. Another advantage of learning coding would be if you are starting a business you will be able to create your own software product and sell it yourself instead of giving your idea to someone who can code and paying them to create and code your product.

How did I find coding?

I have benefited from learning coding in college where I studied IT for 3 years and in my final year I was told was told to create a 5 paged website which I found difficult but after learning coding for a few weeks I started to understand the coding language and found it much easier to create a website and felt as if It would benefit me in the future when I study at a higher level.

Now studying coding in University of Salford as part of one of my modules I feel I have a better understanding on the coding language and how the coding works. But because it is at a higher standard I am still finding it quite difficult to understand some parts of coding. But I believe if I carry on learning coding and attending my seminars it will not only benefit me now but benefit me in the future.

What is HTML and how does it benefit business organisations?

HTML is a short term for Hyper Text Mark-up Language, every webpage you open or create will need a HTML file so basically it is a computer language which will then create webpages.  You can also edit HTML files. HTML are represented by tags and a browser will not display the HTML tags but use them to reduce the content of the page. This will benefit business organisations because it will be cost effective and you will be able to develop multi-platforms. Another benefit would be offline browsing this will be good because you can access apps without an internet connection.

What is CSS and how does it benefit business organisations?

CSS is a short term for Cascading Style Sheet this is a language which is made for designers who are designing a web page. When you have typed up your code in CSS it will be displayed on your webpage and it will allow you to edit the page for example edit the colour of the text, background and even pictures by typing the code in.
