I recently taught a class for www.cctbusiness.com on HTML5 and CSS3 level 1 the class was exceptional. I discussed the basics and foundation of building your site with the correct markup and structure. I also covered basic foundation of CSS3. The students where great. I could not have been more impressed with how quickly they picked up the foundation of the web development.
I have included a list of the resources that I provided during the class below. Also if anyone has any questions in regards to the class or information discussed please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
