Why learn to write code using a Text Editor?…

Programming is a unique task that involves writing lines of code with syntax that differs drastically from how languages are commonly written. Instructions written in common language are typically recorded with word-processor software that unifies the text with a similar structure so that each line and language block is readable. Coding languages use specialized characters to structure blocks of logic. Structure and special character use vary drastically from the syntax of spoken languages. Therefore, developers use modern text editors to form logical blocks of code with built-in highlighting features of the text editors to make the code readable.

Text Editors are the most adaptive tool used in the web software development field. Each tool has unique community support from developers that use it. There are outstanding free open-source text editors and other paid software that offer more functionality for different tasks. Text editors offer developers the ability to use specific highlighting packages for each development language. The text editing software also allows developers to open files that cannot traditionally be opened, so that specific things inside the file structure can be altered. Furthermore, text editors can function as servers that run packages of software locally on the developer’s computer as an integrated development environment. This course is a beginner-friendly introduction to the two most popular text editors in the web development industry.


Applicants to every level of software/web development are expected to have experience working with text editor software as part of their daily developer workflow. Experience using the full suite of tools mentioned above denotes that the applicant is capable of navigating a codebase in a professional setting. Students of this course will gain the knowledge necessary to navigate the basic file structure of web applications, and how to write code in different file formats.
