I'm not saying dont take the course either way. You will learn some valuable knowledge. Just be aware that courses like this at most higher learning institutions are usually behind times in the curriculum.
All I know is I have a lot to learn.The outdated versions of html or(code)types may be helpful just to get the general understanding. I think once I have a grasp on the main points of each language I could advance very quickly. For now research is needed.
