HTML, CSS, and Web Development2:16 with Treasure Porth
These days, there's a whole variety of different programming languages and frameworks that help to add interactivity and sophistication to a website, but at their core they each rely on the power of HTML and CSS to build the stunning, interactive displays you've come to expect online.
Learning how to master the fundamentals of HTML and CSS is an essential first step for any aspiring web developer. HTML is the most basic building block of the Web, and helps in providing meaning and structure for web content. The way we write and implement HTML can even help make the internet more accessibility for people with diverse needs. CSS is used to describe the presentation or visual style of a website; without this, the internet would probably just be black text on a white background!
