Overview

One of the best ways to improve your programming IQ is to create simple games.  Creating simple games will improve your algorithm skills and help you really see how everything you can think of could be constructed using simple building blocks of software.  When your algorithm works, your game will work, which makes creating a game a really good way to improve and visualize your algorithms in action.

The goal of this course is to introduce you some basic HTML and CSS, and then to have you start creating simple games from scratch.  This exercise will help you get some familiarities with technologies related to web development also.
