In this lesson you will learn about HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

The best way to learn a language is to use it, in this lesson you are going to create a simple webpage in just a few short minutes. Once the lesson is over you should play around with the code and try to make the page as unique as possible.

HyperText Markup Language

HTML is a computer language that uses a series of tags to structure a document.

HTML was created by Sir. Tim Berners-Lee, the same man who created the Word Wide Web.

Cascading Style Sheets

CSS is a computer language used to style webpages.

CSS was created after HTML to give web designers more control over how their sites were displayed in a browser.


JS is an object oriented programming language that allows us to create interactive effects for web pages

For example: We can allow a user to change the background colour by clicking a button.

JavaScript is the hardest to learn out of these three languages. This is because JS is a programming language and can be used to solve problems and calculations, while HTML is a markup language and CSS is a style sheet language.
