HTML ( Hyper Text Markup Language) is used to structure a web page and its contents. It’s important to learn HTML before one can go ahead with Web development. It is the base of every web page we see on the internet.
Whenever we come across any topic we are always lectured upon what to study in that topic. Nobody guides us on how to study the topic? what to begin with? how to achieve expertise? My mission is to guide you on how to get started with a topic based on my personal experience so that you don’t face the problem of being lost and not knowing the next steps.
How to get started with HTML?
You can go from being absolute beginner to a pro HTML coder if you follow these steps below.
1. Get your basics right
Start with very basics of HTML. First of all what is the purpose of HTML? It is basically used to give a basic structure to the web page. Just like we need to get the structure ready before we can build a house.
To get your basics right start with w3schools. W3schools is a great learning website to start off with HTML. It covers each and every topic necessary to begin with HTML along with hands on exercises and quizzes.
2. Enroll yourself in an online course.
Self learning is the best form of learning but self learning guided by a professional in that field is always the best approach.
Once you are done with learning the basics, now I would recommend you to enroll in a course to guide you on what are the things required in real world scenario. Course will guide you on the most important topics you need to know and how to apply the basics you just learnt.
You can enroll in any good HTML course from the following websites:
Make sure the course you enroll in covers the important topics and contains lots of projects and hand on exercises especially real world based projects.
