Do you realize that the only functionality of a web application that the user directly interacts with is through the web page? Implement it poorly and, to the user, the server-side becomes irrelevant! Today’s user expects a lot out of the web page: it has to load fast, expose the desired service, and be comfortable to view on all devices: from a desktop computers to tablets and mobile phones.

In this course, we will learn the basic tools that every web page coder needs to know. We will start from the ground up by learning how to implement modern web pages with HTML and CSS. We will then advance to learning how to code our pages such that its components rearrange and resize themselves automatically based on the size of the user’s screen. You’ll be able to code up a web page that will be just as useful on a mobile phone as on a desktop computer. No “pinch and zoom” required! Last but certainly not least, we will get a thorough introduction to the most ubiquitous, popular, and incredibly powerful language of the web: Javascript. Using Javascript, you will be able to build a fully functional web application that utilizes Ajax to expose server-side functionality and data to the end user.

This was the 4th course I've completed with certification in Coursera and 3rd in Ruby on Rails Web Development Specialization and I can certainly say that for me it was the best of them!

It is very well organized, has an EXCELLENT professor, includes an introduction (and usage) of twitter bootstrap, applies learning material into a real-world website!

The only negative thing I have to say is related to the 5th week on AJAX...

Although the professor had informed us in the first lecture of the module that it was gonna be just an intro and the goal of the…

So far one of the best courses on the topic of HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Great instructor, very good design and structure. Some concepts (especially on the topic of CSS) were presented in really great detail, even a somewhat experienced web developer might learn something new.

However, I am not sure why this is labelled as being part of the Ruby specialisation since it has nothing to do with Ruby.

Well structured course with good examples. The module assignments are also very important. The instructor explains almost everything in detail and I'm really understanding CSS and how to implement in a real world website.

The course is just awesome, Highly recommended for anyone who wishes to enter or is currently into Web development. There are many tricks and tips offered by the instructor. The quality of the course is top-notch. Just as the professor says, the students would be able to understand the "why" part of "what" after completing the course.
