Learn to code the language of the web

They call HTML “the markup language of the web”, and for good reason: every web page is rendered in HTML in some way. It’s simple, it’s powerful, and it’s essential knowledge for those of us who want to code websites.

With nothing more than a text editor and a browser, Guilherme shows you how to use the main HTML tags to code the semantic markup of a professional web page. You’ll also learn to test and validate your code for cross-device and cross-browser compatibility.

Guilherme’s work was reviewed by Aleksander Koko, so if you’re an HTML beginner, you’re in good hands here.

Oh yeah, and the whole SitePoint library! Learn More.
