2021 CS50x - WEEK 8

I've advanced to week 8 in Harvard's CS50x course which focuses on Web Development basically with HTML, CSS and JavaScript being the focus. The problem set for this week is to create a page using HTML,CSS,JavaScript and Bootstrap.

So far in the lecture I learned a fair bit about Web Dev (I'm into Software Dev) but the problem is a bit challenging for me because I have no experience in HTML, CSS/Bootstrap and Js so I've got to start learning them, at least the basics which is what I'm doing using freeCodeCamp.
But at the same time I'm also trying to see what I can do with my current little knowledge on HTML/CSS, the specifications for the problem set is a bit steep for me but I will definitely pull through(hopefully).

So far what I've been able to create with my skillset is:

I'm thinking of doing Khan Academy's HTML, CSS, Js lectures because I prefer video lectures to just texts on screen but so far I've been using freeCodeCamp and that's what I've been able to come up with, I still have a LOT to do and 3 more pages to create, not even done with the first, and I haven't used JavaScript or Bootstrap at all.

I will drop an update in a few days when I improve my skills and do something better.

Also please if you have any tips that can help, tell me in the comments.

I just want to make something simple and neat, no special effects or whatnot
