Learning Path Overview 

HTML5 is one of the fundamental building blocks of the internet. It’s a markup language that we use to structure our websites in a simple and logical way, telling our browsers how to present information to users. In this comprehensive course, you’ll learn everything you need to start creating your own HTML5 markup, through a series of short videos and activities. In the course, we’ll cover everything you need to know, including the basics of networking, basic html, hyperlinking, images, tables, lists, forms, and the DOM. This course will set you up to move into the second part of this learning journey, which is focused on CSS, and beyond!
