Also, if you are willing to kick off your carrier as a web developer, HTML is basically the first thing you will tackle. This series Learn HTML will cover all the basic stuffs you need to know about HTML 5 which is simply the latest HTML version. So after this series You will be able to make a cool webpage using HTML.
Before starting to learn HTML, lets talk about HTML itself. HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) is basically a language used to present your content on World Wide Web (www). HTML 5 was first released in public-facing form on 22 January 2008, with a major update and “W3C Recommendation” status in October 2014. It is also a mobile friendly language, as it was designed by keeping small devices under consideration. Simply told, HTML is a simple yet powerful language used to design the web contents.
So lets begin with the requirements. You need a PC to start learning HTML. Any Operating system is good. You can even use your phone but it will be quite difficult coding from a phone. You can use notepad or basically anything that deals with text. I prefer using Sublime Text as I have been using it for a while. To install Sublime text click here.
So, at first lets take a look at format of a HTML program and it looks like this:
<html> This is beginning of a HTML file.
<head> This is heading to specify the heading of your page in browser.
<body> You write your contents in the body.
As you can see each section starts with <section_name> and ends with </section_name>: the same thing with a slash before name. Real easy to remember.
You can simply create a new text file and name it as file.html to make it a HTML file. If you are using Sublime Text (I highly recommend that) you can open Sublime, hit ctrl+n , name it as anything.html and you are good to go. It is gonna be real easy if you use an IDE.
So, this concludes the introduction.We will start with the basics in our next article, so stay tuned for that. If you have any queries, feel free to comment and give a visit to our facebook page.
