What is HTML?

I think you probably heard about it but I want to express my thought. HTML is simple language made up of elements, which can be applied to pieces of text to give them different meaning in a document and embed content such as images and videos into a page. Basically, HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) is used to design web-pages, interfaces for various mobile applications and web applications. HTML is used for a huge variety of things on the web, from building complex websites that offer email and calendar functions to constructing a simple course website or resume. (HTML, CSS and JavaScript) are the main three languages but HTML is the backbone of all of them. HTML is the standard markup language for creating beautiful designs.

Learning HTML


You don’t need any previous coding knowledge, but you should have at least basic familiarity with using computers and using the web passively. You should have a basic work environment set up, and understand how to create and manage files (Dealing with files). Unfortunately, coding in HTML doesn’t make you a programmer. Also you don’t need to know all about HTML if you are not interested in making web-page. HTML will give you knowledge that how web-pages work. Codecademy is best place to learn programming languages including HTML. You’ll learn the basics in 3 days and you don’t need to spend money for this. Also there are a lot of YouTube videos available, which will help you improve your coding.

How difficult is learning HTML?

HTML is the easiest language you can learn. If you use the right tool for writing html you won’t need to memories the whole code to write something. If you start something the software will automatically guess that which code are you trying to write. The most popular software is notepad++. But I would recommend you to use
Brackets. There could be a better software for html but I haven’t try all of them. Brackets is my personal favorite source code editor.

There is a confusion that, is it a programming language?

The answer is No, HTML is not a programming language. The “M” stands for “Markup”. Generally, a programming language allows you to describe some sort of process of doing something, whereas HTML is a way of adding context and structure to text.
