Course overview

HTML, or Hypertext Markup Language, is a language used to define the content, structure, and meaning of webpages. It's one of the three core web technologies used to create websites, the other two being CSS and JavaScript.

HTML is not a programming language per se, which otherwise has the provision of data types, operators and logical constructs to control the flow of execution in a given program; it's purely just a markup language used to define documents.

If you want to get into web development, one of the most popular and demanding careers of the current era, you have to begin with HTML no matter what kind of specialization you wish to do later on.

HTML is the fundamental building block of the World Wide Web. It works by marking up some pieces of text to have a special meaning with the help of elements. There is a large collection of elements in HTML. An HTML page is just an alamgamation of these elements together.

Learning HTML is extremely easy and intuitive. There isn't really that much to wrap the mind around in HTML — the grammar has a few rules, the basic terminology and concepts are very straightforward, and some advanced ideas are also pretty simple to digest. It's all peaches and cream to become capable of writing HTML in less than a week. Seriously.

Learning outcomes

This course aims at providing you with a rock-solid foundation on HTML before you proceed to explore other amazing avenues in web development, which will usually commence with CSS and JavaScript.

This course makes sure that by the end of it, you have a profound knowledge of not just HTML but also what to learn up next and why, and even where to code.

Going into more details, by the end of this course, you'll have a firm grasp over the following:

  1. What exactly is HTML and what do the terms 'hypertext' and 'markup language' mean.
  2. How and where to write HTML, and then view its output in the browser. Also, we'll see what is Visual Studio Code and how it's the de facto editor these days for coding.
  3. The basics of HTML, including but not limited to: HTML elements and tags; setting the document's title, working with HTML attributes; a coding style guide to follow; and so on.
  4. The different ways to work with text in HTML, for example, as headings, paragraphs, bold and italic text, superscripts and subscripts, preformatted blocks, definitions, abbreviations, marked portions, quotations and citations, and much more.
  5. What are HTML entities, the different ways of denoting entities in HTML, and why we really need them.
  6. How to work with text representing code or the output generated by code or even the keyboard input involved in given programs, via the elements <code>, <samp> and <kbd>, respectively.
  7. What is meant by 'metadata' and which elements in HTML are used to provide metadata for a given webpage. These include <title>, <meta> and <link>, in addition to a few others.
