Frontend Tracks on JetBrains Academy: Learn HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

We have some great news for those looking to develop new programming skills or expand their knowledge in the specific areas of frontend development. A new Introduction to Frontend track is now available at JetBrains Academy! It includes all the HTML and CSS essentials to give you a feel for web development, and it guides you through the process of creating your first web page.

If you already have a grasp on the basics of HTML and CSS and want to further improve your skills, we have something for you too. The Frontend Core track (previously known as Frontend Developer) is a perfect choice for learners who want to challenge themselves with advanced projects, learn JavaScript, and gain more in-depth knowledge of web development.

We’re also providing a month-long free access period to both tracks for all JetBrains Academy students! After September 12, the frontend tracks will be available as part of the personal or organizational subscription plan. Please note that while we’re still working on releasing these tracks from Beta, they are marked as unpublished, and they can only be accessed via a direct link.
