HTML & CSS Honors is part of the Spectrum summer program for students offered by the Center for Talent Development, a non-profit center within the School of Education and Social Policy at Northwestern University.

A big thank you to all the students who took the HTML & CSS Honors course this year. Answer keys to previous homework assignments (assignment 5, assignment 7, assignment 8, and assignment 12) are now online. Students should receive their final grades and student evaluations in September.

I encourage students to consider their future coursework suggestions, which were primarily the Python programming language (SciPy, NumPy, Pandas, Flask, Django) and the JavaScript programming language (jQuery, D3, Three.js, Node, Gulp, React). Other solid choices include Ruby, Java, Swift, and C++. I also recommend video game development with Unity game engine or Internet of Things development with Raspberry Pi or 3D printing.

For beginner introductions to these languages, check out Codecademy, Code School, Treehouse, and Khan Academy.

It was a pleasure to help everyone during their coding journeys, and I hope that you never stop learning what’s possible with technology.
