HTML Crash Course

justalever profile image Andy Leverenz Originally published at on ・1 min read

Welcome to my first beginner crash course. We're starting with the basics here and HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is one of those languages that make the internet possible. What you're reading right now is in fact built with HTML (and some CSS for the aesthetic qualities).

Learning HTML can enable you to build your own custom website or use a no-code tool with a little more understanding of the conventions of the browser, code, and more.

This course is about 1.5 hours long and is targeted at absolute beginners. Some courses out there like to tie all the pieces together into one resource and I think that's a good second step. As you understand HTML more you can start to branch into more languages of the web such as CSS or JavaScript.

I'll be following up with a CSS crash course to complement this one so expect that soon! Additionally, I'll be starting a new theme of beginner content to help appeal to a wider audience.


If you're interested in putting both HTML & CSS to real practice I invite you to check out my new upcoming course called Hello HTML & CSS. Be sure to review that page and subscribe to get notified when the course launches. I'm working hard behind the scenes to get it ready!
