OUR EXPERIENCE SO FAR – Team-Trendsetter of She hacks Africa Cohort 7


Our experience so far has been awesome, we learnt a lot of things about how the internet works, the server which is been made up of routers and switches and the importance to understand the internet as a developer.

We learnt HTML, different tags and new tags in HTML 5. We were able to create table,s forms, we used the ordered and unordered list tags also. We also learnt how to use the <video> and <audio> tags and how to embed videos from youtube.

We learnt CSS, the three different ways of inserting a style sheet: External style sheet, Internal style sheet, Inline style. The inline styling which is added to the element, the externel styling which is included in the head tag and the external styling in a separate style sheet which is linked to our html file using the <link> tag.

We were taught the CSS syntax which consists of a selector and a declaration block.

The selector points to the HTML element you want to style, the declaration block contains one or more declarations separated by semicolons and each declaration includes a CSS property name and a value, separated by a colon.

We learnt how to create the Nav bar using list, which was styled using CSS and then we used the tag name<footer> to create a footer.

Lastly, we came up with a project titled Fashnaija which is centered on connecting customers to Nigerian made clothes and related items. We look forward to learning more at week 2.
