3 Basic Web Languages For Coders That help you in web design and development.

Insert picture description

There are so many Web languages nowadays, so people are confused about which language to learn to create high-quality web pages. If you want to do something exciting in Web Language, here are three basic level languages, and you should start from here.

HTML

HTML is a great language. It defines the structure of web pages, and it determines how data is displayed online. But this doesn't make HTML a programming language.

A markup language

HTML encapsulates or "marks up" data within HTML tags or elements, defining the data and describing its purpose on the web page. The web browser then reads the HTML elements, which tells it things like headings, which parts are paragraphs, which parts are links, etc. The HTML describes the data to the browser, and the browser then displays the data accordingly.

That's how the browser knows that.

However, this is not programming, as I said before. The above is not an example of an executable script. HTML used to mark up the text for the browser to read and interpret as web page content. HTML is used for structural purposes on a web page, not functional ones.

CSS

Now come with the new language that CSS uses to create a creative website, or you can say HTML is the sole of CSS; without CSS, you can't imagine a creative website * (most cases).

How it CSS works? CSS describes how HTML elements should be displayed. Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used to describe a document written in a markup language like HTML. It describes the Web pages, including colours, layout, and fonts. It allows one to adapt the presentation to different devices, such as large screens, small screens, or printers. CSS is independent of HTML and can be used with any XML-based markup language.

JavaScript

JavaScript is the most popular and widely used client-side scripting language, i.e. it runs within the client's (user) browser. It is used to make web pages interactive and to add dynamic effects to the web pages. JavaScript is an object-oriented language, i.e. it supports all object-oriented concepts like C ++ or java. But, JavaScript is not related to the Java language in any way.

Jquery and then JavaScript. If you're completely new at this I would recommend Codecademy or CodeRepublics.
