Whats the difference between section and article?
Im having trouble understanding the difference between "<section>" and <article>" when they do essentially the same?

The section element groups together related sections of content, for example, a group of blog entries. It can be used for semantic meaning and markup on your pages instead of the generic div element.
<section> Your content grouped together inside the section. </section>
The article element element describes self-contained pieces of content. You can also nest the article inside of a section tag, or use it on it's own.
<section> <article> A piece of content... </article> <article> Another piece of content... </article> </section>
<article> Stand alone content... </article>
