Once you learn the basics, you will know how change the website’s design and add personalized content. No prior coding experience is necessary to follow along the chapters in this book.
HTML is the standard markup language used to display documents in a web browser. First developed by Tim Berners Lee in 1990 while working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), HTML was one of the key innovative technologies used to publish the world’s first website on August 6, 1991. Thanks to a restoration project by CERN, you can now revisit the original website. Since that time, HTML has been significantly updated and expanded but its basic purpose to format and structure web pages remains the same.
In this book, you’ll learn how to create and customize a website using common HTML tags and techniques. After working through this book, you’ll have a site ready to deploy to the cloud.
