You'll be amazed how quick and easy it is to create very professional looking websites, even if you have no programming or web design experience at all.

Watch over my shoulder as I build a cool User Authorization app step-by-step right in front of you. You'll follow along and build your own copy. This app lets the user sign up (register) for your site, log in, log out, edit their profile, and change their passwords. These days, just about every website lets people sign up and log in, and you really need this skill if you want to build modern web apps. We'll style the website using the popular Bootstrap CSS framework.
