A quick tutorial to help you get started building websites.
Since HTML is the foundation of the web, it is also the most essential language for any web development career path. In this fast-paced tutorial, I’ll teach you the very basics of it.
And when you’re done, I have already launched a free 14-part course on HTML5 over on Scrimba.com — an interactive platform where you can jump into the code of a playing screencast at any given time.
