You do not have to become a coder to do well in this course. However, you will have to be willing to explore technical skills that you might not otherwise develop as a humanities scholar. In this initial assignment, we’ll use one of the web’s many excellent self-education platforms to learn the very basics of how web pages work.
Once you have finished, send me a link to your profile page (click “view my Profile” under the top right menu item with your picture on it). That’s all! But feel free to continue exploring on Codeacademy – there’s lots to learn and much of it will be helpful to this course, or to your further explorations in this field.
- Set up an account on Github. Upload one of your completed projects there. Send me the link so I can explore.
You can learn more about git and github here. This information will come in handy later, so it’s well worth your time now.
