Welcome To Html Readme

Welcome to the HTML Basics unit!


In the next few lessons, we'll be introducing you to HTML (HyperText Markup Language).

HTML is a documentation-based technology. The word documentation probably inspires a mental image of someone carrying heaps of papers, folders, files. But what is a document in the digital realm?

We'll start our exploration of HTML by thinking about files and learning the vocabulary technologists use to discuss them in the process of creating HTML documents. This will assist your searches for help and your ability to interact with professionals on the topic.

We'll then proceed to a collaborative lab where you'll be guided in editing a simple HTML document. The point here is not to memorize the full detail of HTML's vocabulary, but to experience the joy and excitement of being able to adjust and customize HTML.

After that, we'll learn a core set of HTML features that will enable you to create simple HTML documents with less-explicit guidance. Around this time, you'll then begin tying these discoveries together and will start creating your first HTML documents.

Repetition & Getting Stuck

In the lessons ahead, many of the ideas are deliberately repeated. You might not get "attributes" the first time you see them, but, after some hands-on experience, they'll makes sense the second time you see them.


At the close of the unit, you'll be ready to learn a series of HTML expressions that will allow you to create a meaningful web page.

Learn about Flatiron School's Mission

With a new take on education that falls somewhere between self-taught prodigy and four-year computer science degree, the Flatiron School promises to turn students with little programming experience into developers.

In the six months since the Manhattan coding school was acquired by WeWork, it has spawned locations in Washington, D.C., Brooklyn, and London. Now, WeWork is opening a fourth Flatiron School location, this time in Houston.

Adam Enbar, Flatiron School's cofounder, believes now is the time to grow. "How the world is changing has impacted working and learning in very similar ways. We think education fundamentally is about one thing: enabling people to pursue a better life."

Learn. Love. Code.
