Comments for ANNUAL INTRO COMP SCI 2 OF 2 - Period 4

          This site is not a test it out site as W3Schools is, however, I feel that this could be an advantage, in that it outlines the steps, without babying you and this methodology, at least for me, allows me to actually retain the information. There is an outline, where you can efficiently navigate the site without really losing your place, and gives you samples of code and code templates that demonstrate exemplary work that you can use as the basis for own coding journey. So, this site gives a more independent approach to coding that resonates with me more.

          An advantage of this particular site is that it gives information regarding HTML code and tags in a much easier and more condensed form. It can be useful for somebody who has perhaps forgotten what specific tag to use but due to time constraints can't go through the entire process of looking through W3Schools.

          Reasoning-I think this source is pretty good and somewhat easier to work with since it goes more in-depth about HTML and CSS. It provides more specific information about the various aspects of both HTML and CSS. It talks more about the terms of HTML such as tags, elements, and structure. Similarly, it focuses on specific CSS terms like selectors, values, and resets. An advantage of it is that along with these two topics, it has several more lessons which kind of helps you see the use of HTML and CSS in the bigger picture. I find it quite interesting and pretty good so I picked this source.

          I found the site nice because it lists all the tags in a neat and organized way making it really easy to find a tag (in my opinion). Unfortunately, the information on each tag is less than W3Schools, so you may have to do more research if there isn't enough there.

      I found this website, and I think it is very useful.

          It provides a "comprehensive" introduction to the various
          technologies, but w3schools's introduction is not very
          solid. MDN web docs also have a better user interface and
          seem to contain more information. I also like the colors of the page. The language in which the information is written in is also more readable and less confusing.

          Whether you're using or, personally I feel like the net, is far more useful, showing real instances of which the code is being implied. Through its vivid examples, it's hard to match even if it's talking about Bible Study. StackOverflow seems overwhelming so I chose to go with the html dog. The url has examples of how the text would come out for each coding block. I'm more of a visual learner, and getting the gist of the "results" seems more appealing to me than just "how to code this."

          This website is really good because it organizes different types of code into their own separate pages, and within those pages, there are multiple different versions of the code that you may potentially want to learn/integrate into your website.

          This is more tutorial-based than w3schools and I can get more clarification and examples from the lessons.

          I feel that htmldog is somewhat easier to use than w3schools since there is a level for beginners, intermediate and advanced people so it might be good for people who knows what level they are in.

          It gives me a lot of flexibility on what I want to learn and
          has great exercises

          For a year now, I've been using Codecademy to learn more about coding. The catalog for HTML/CSS is particularly helpful because there are a variety of topics to explore, and there are projects and little exercises that go along with each. It's better in some way than W3Schools because they provide projects to do that help you learn more about HTML.


          I found this a very useful resource because it had a well organized cheat sheet that allows anything to be looked up with relative ease. On the cheat sheet it tells you what it is and gives a code preview. Something I found really nice about the code preview is that you can open it on code pen so it is easy to copy and paste and modify the example. There are also very helpful guides that go through everything from syntax to what CSS or HTML can do.
          Also, I am really looking forward to learning html it seems super fun :DDD

          This is better, at least in my opinion, because it lets you write out the code and teaches what it does on the same page, making it easier to work with. The try it out feature on W3Schools is similar but it opens a different tab. I did feel like the W3Schools HTML and CSS information was more complete, even though a good portion of the information on both sites overlapped. However, as I mentioned earlier, the resource felt like it was easier to work with.

          There is a course on HTML through Khan Academy that looks very helpful because it not only has videos that explain concepts, it also has exercises that utilize those skills. It seems like it would be a good place to learn and practice new concepts.

          It's free and doesn't require any sign up. There's also an Advanced additional course, though you only asked for one URL, so I have only linked the initial course.

          I really like this site because it has specific projects for you to do. For me, to helped to be working towards making something while learning how to use new skills. On this site there are 5 different four-part projects you can do which each teach you new skills and give you practice using html and CSS.

          I used these videos to learn python and the method in which it teaches concept upon concept is extremely helpful, and when he integrates scenarios and different challenges with the concepts taught makes it also very helpful. Also overall, I find watching video tutorials much more effective than reading from an online forum/platform. Although it does seem long, it teaches really well and super well paced.

          I found this site easier to work with and better because it has a very detailed explanation of Html and CSS languages. Moreover, it has the "cheat sheet" option which I can download/print to help me study the terms later. In addition to that, compared to how W3Schools is more of me exploring and trying the codes out, Codecademy provides more detailed step-by-step instruction. I tried out the HTML lesson on the site, and it really guides me through very clearly. For example, when I was trying out the body section, it listed the instructions and I can just follow it. If I made a mistake, it will give me a hint on what I did wrong, which is very convincing. Before the instructions, it also has a clear explanation of what the code does.

          I feel that this website is a bit better than w2schools because the interface is easier to navigate and it provides more background about Html.

          The course on HTML and CSS is free and doesn't require signing up, which a lot of other websites lack. It has 12 lessons that take you step by step through the process of learning HTML and CSS. It gradually builds on itself so you're not overwhelmed with a lot of information at once, and the site is easy to navigate. It also provides links to other helpful sources. I found it more informative than W3Schools, however it lacks the interactivity that W3Schools provides.

          I think this website is better because it geared specifically towards beginners, especially since most of us within the class are learning HTML for the first time.

DAVID OKE: and are great sites for starting out html. While many functions of this platform and the sample platform provided are the same, what stands out is the multiple editors that the platform allows the student to use. There is also more freedom in what the student is suggested to do, given the ability to start from scratch and make more out of the sample code given.

          I found it to be more in-depth and I thought it was more helpful because it worked with me step by step.

      I found the website:
          Although I find that the try it out code editor within W3Schools is more convenient, I find MDN better otherwise. Firstly, its organization is significantly better (includes less ads and is less cluttered), and it is much easier to follow. Additionally, it goes more in depth through its explanations, but also offers a list of tags (elements) that explains the uses of each tag briefly. Furthermore, I think it does a better job explaining CSS in terms of integrating it within HTML. Additionally, MDN has a great built in search function that can get you to what you need quickly. However, I think it is important to note that MDN serves moreso as documentation (while also providing tutorials), and W3Schools serves only as a tutorial. I personally prefer MDN because I think it is easier to navigate and find information quickly, while someone entirely new to HTML who wants a not in depth tutorial, might prefer W3schools.

          This website comes with the advantage of in-depth video lessons, quizzes, and practice activities

          i like this website, as it kind of functions like the netlogo dictionary. It is an extensive cheat sheet with all the html coding compacted in an easy to digest and accessible way.

          The explanations for what different elements do are very helpful. It's a good website for learning the basics.

          I chose that site because it gives a more methodical and
          step-by-step approach to teaching HTML, as well as breaking
          down the individual parts/structures of the language,
          instead of just hurling a bunch of general-ish info and
          practice problems at you without giving proper examples or
          breakdowns of the language

SAM SONTAG: Codecademy is a great source of information about html and css, and it can be better than W3Schools because where W3Schools provides what is basically just a catalog of things you can do with html and css, codecademy has much better and more in depth tutorials and as such is better for beginners.

          Like the W3Schools site, BitDegree has a lot of information and references on HTML, but I find its code editor tool/interactive tool more powerful. There are separate tabs for writing HTML, CSS, and Javascript code on a single page which makes writing with external files easy. The code editor also has a search bar for looking up example code from its extensive library, has an autocomplete function for code, and indents for you. The W3Schools site doesn't have any of these features and just has a much simpler code editor (though some may prefer that).

Savana YEUNG:
          I think that this website (Shay Howe) is better than W3schools because it shows what the end product would look like on the page. On W3schools, I have to press "Try it Yourself" to see what it would look like in the end. On the Shay Howe website, it has the demo readily, which I think is better because it saves time. Initially, I didn't press know how to see what the end product would be like on W3schools. I did not press in the "Try it Yourself" button because I thought it would make me do the code, but then I realized when I took a look. It started a new tab that showed the final product, but the Shay Howe website eliminated that confusion. Also, I prefer how all the code is in a grey area for Shay Howe's website compared to W3schools, I feel like the formatting helps me focus more, especially if I was on the computer for a long time. The numbered lessons on the left side in the Shay Howe's website is less overwhelming because it groups the categories together, but on W3schools, it was a bunch of titles and it looks quite overwhelming at first sight.

      I use, the Khan Academy for Html, and for reference I prefer the W3 school, I know you told us not to use W3 school but, I really like it.
          I like Khan academy because It has videos and practice problems with many small steps and videos that help me understand better.

          Lets you interact with the code directly from their site.

          It's a good way to develop a website if you don't want to use notepad. It also has a good documentation page...
