Day 2

We had a whirlwind introduction to HTML, Github, and GitPod. In one day, we coded a very simple website.

I've dabbled in manual coding of HTML before, and it was a lightning refresher in the basic tags every website contains. Tomorrow we'll plunge into CSS, which will be something completely new to me.

I'm glad that I finally cracked open Github. That was a very intimidating site that I used before to download other people's code, but never my own.

We are running at a very fast pace, or maybe I need more coffee... ;)
