Hello there, fellow coders! Today, I'm excited to share my first "Today I Learned" entry as I embark on my coding journey with the Sparta Coding Club. It's been a fantastic week, and I'm thrilled to tell you all about it.


Joining the Sparta Coding Club was a fantastic decision. The world of coding has always fascinated me, and I felt it was time to take the plunge. What really convinced me to join this particular club was its reputation for providing an excellent learning environment and structured guidance.


The prospect of collaborating with like-minded individuals who share my passion for coding was just too enticing to resist.

My First Session

In the very first session, we dived headfirst into the realm of HTML, the foundational language of web development. It was exhilarating to learn about HTML tags, how they structure web content, and, most importantly, how to create a basic webpage.


Our instructor also emphasized the importance of semantic HTML and its impact on web accessibility and search engine optimization. Furthermore, it is important to Google any information you need related to HTML rather than spending hours trying to by heart the syntax.


And in the second session, we jumped into Bootstrap, which is a collection of stylish CSS. It just makes your work look more attractive by not putting in much effort. We also got a taste of JavaScript using the console in the browser as it is the only programming language the browser natively understands.


What went really well today was the instructor's teaching approach. He broke down complex concepts into bite-sized, digestible pieces, which made it much easier for newcomers like me to understand.


The hands-on practice was another highlight, allowing me to put my newly acquired knowledge to the test.


Admittedly, I did face a bit of a challenge with nesting HTML elements correctly, but I'm confident that practice will make perfect.


Looking ahead, I'm eager to delve into CSS, a vital component of web design and beautification. Additionally, I can't wait to explore JavaScript, which brings interactivity to web applications. My ultimate goal is to complete a small project that combines HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to solidify my understanding and put my skills to the test.


So, there you have it—my first week with Sparta Coding Club, and it's safe to say I'm already hooked. Stay tuned for more updates on my coding journey and the exciting world of web development.


Until next time, happy coding!
