HTML

If you think of web development as a house, you can break it down into 4 major parts. You have the Foundation/Framing of the house, that can be considered the HTML. You’ll map out the website and different sections with HTML to be able to use later on. The plumbing and electrical can be considered the server-side language aka the brains of the house. That is more along the lines of PHP, Node.js, Rails, among others. These languages help to throw information from your server onto the page for the user to see. Javascript can be thought of as the light switches/faucets. You can do fun cool things that are interactive for the user on the site but very useful. Finally css can be considered the paint/aesthetics of the house. You use CSS to make your site styled and pretty.

In this lesson we will be going over HTML. HTML is important, but simple to learn for the most part. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be writing this stuff up with your eyes closed. You need to make sure that your site is set up for success by mapping it out with HTML. For instance we know every site will have a

<head></head>
<body></body>

The things inside the <head> tag should be things the site needs to load or something for Google Analytics/Facebook/Tracking for your site. Then the important information visuals are in the <body> tags. I’ve gone through a slight breakdown in this video.

If you want to look further into HTML you can use W3schools tutorial for more than the basics. This should get you up and running. If you get frustrated, don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.
