How to get started with HTML for beginners?

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?

1. Get your basics right
