My name is Alex Merced and about me...

  • I'm the creator of devNursery
  • I'm an instructor for General Assembly Bootcamps [https://generalassemb.ly]

Covered in this Curriculum

  • Basics of HTML/CSS/Javascript
  • The Basics of Essential Tooling (Git, Github, VSCode, Bash Terminal)
  • The Basics of Deploying a Static Website

While you go through the initial lessons it may be beneficial to use these browser based coding tools to get use to the syntax before you dive into local development with VSCode, Node, and other tools.

NOTE: Bash/Terminal is available out of the box on Mac and Linux computers, if you are using windows please download GitBash or even better setup Window Subsystem for Linux.
